BSF finds two Chinese drones in Punjab border operations


During search operations in Punjab's Amritsar district, the Border Security Force (BSF) uncovered two Chinese drones, as per reports on Sunday.

The operations led to the discovery of a China-made DJI Matrice 300 RTK drone from the courtyard of an abandoned house in Hardo Ratan village. Another Chinese-made DJI Mavic 3 Classic drone was found in a harvested field adjacent to Nestha village.

BSF attributed the success of the operation to reliable information and the vigilance of its troopers, preventing potential attempts by drone handlers and drug smugglers from across the border.

Punjab shares a 553-km barbed-wire-fenced border with Pakistan, guarded by the BSF.
