Border Security Force recovers 2 Chinese drones in Amritsar

Two Chinese drones were recovered two locations in the border area of Punjab’s Amritsar district in search operations launched on information by the Border Security Force’s (BSF) intelligence wing.

Noteworthy, the Border Security Force (BSF) is India’s border guarding organisation at its borders with Pakistan and Bangladesh. It is one of the five Central Armed Police Forces of India, and was raised in the wake of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 “for ensuring the security of the borders of India and for related matters”.

The operations resulted in the recovery of a China-made DJI Matrice 300 RTK drone from the courtyard of an abandoned house of Hardo Ratan village in Amritsar, the BSF said.

Another Chinese-made DJI Mavic 3 Classic drone was recovered from a harvested field adjacent to Nestha village.

Reliable information and alertness of BSF troopers successfully helped to foil the desperate attempts of drone handlers and drug smugglers from across the border, it added.

Punjab shares a 553-km barbed-wire-fenced border with Pakistan which is under the vigil of the BSF.
