A spokesman for the Indian Border Security Forces announced today, Monday, that a Pakistani drone was shot down near the international border in the "Amritsar" sector of the "Punjab" region.

According to the officials, the drone was carrying 3.2 kg of heroin.

The Pakistani drone, which violated Indian airspace, was intercepted and shot down by alert BSF personnel in Amritsar. "The gross weight of the recovered consignment of suspected narcotics is approximately 3.2 kg," the officials said in a statement, according to India Today NE. 

The number of instances in which Pakistani drones cross borders has been rising in the recent times. According to officials, more than 5 kilograms of heroin that was allegedly dropped by a Pakistani drone near the India-Pakistan border in Amritsar, Punjab, were recovered by security forces on Saturday, June 3. The joint group of the Border Security Force (BSF) and the Punjab Police recuperated the heroin, a BSF representative said.
