More than 150 drone activities have been recorded along the international border in Punjab this year. The Border Security Force (BSF) has also made a plan to deal with this. BSF jawans will get reward for shooting down a drone along the International Border in Punjab. On the other hand, if any Indian smuggler goes to the border to pick up a consignment of drugs and weapons, it has also been decided to shoot him.

Security officials said the cross-border use of drones to drop drugs, arms and ammunition is a major challenge for the security agencies. The use of drones for smuggling narcotics, arms and ammunition was first reported in 2019.

Officials said the Border Security Force (BSF) has shot down 10 drones this year (three last week). Apart from this, the infiltration of drones was thwarted several times. Let us inform that BSF is deployed in the defense of the 553 km border. A senior officer of the Punjab Frontier of the BSF said that so far more than 150 drone activities have been observed. Last week, a drone was shot down near Shahpur border post in Amritsar on October 14. It was a quadcopter (DJI Matrix) and a holding and releasing mechanism was also found with this drone. Two were gunned down in the Amritsar sector on 16 and 17 October.

Conspiracy being hatched with Chinese drones
Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI is behind the smuggling of arms and drugs in Punjab. At the same time, Chinese drones have also raised concerns. BSF officials said smugglers backed by Pakistan’s spy agency ISI are using high-end Chinese drones. These drones are capable of flying at low noise and high level.

More Activities in Amritsar and Tarn Taran

According to officials, most of the drone activities in Punjab are concentrated in areas along the international border in Amritsar and Tarn Taran districts. However, drone activities have also been observed in Ferozepur and Gurdaspur areas. BSF along with Punjab Police busted a gang involved in cross-border smuggling of narcotics and arms in Tarn Taran area this year.

The decision to shoot the smugglers
Only last month, BSF has decided to shoot Indian smugglers coming from Pakistan carrying narcotics and arms near the International Border. The BSF officer said that if any smuggler takes away the consignment or attacks, the law allows us to shoot at the smuggler.

BSF jawans will get award
BSF is alert about the increasing drone activities along the International Border in Punjab. Now the BSF has decided that the soldiers who shot down the drone by entering Indian territory will be rewarded. In April this year, the BSF had announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh to anyone who reported using drones to smuggle narcotics, arms and ammunition from Pakistan.
