Unholy activity on Pakistan’s border, double increase in drone incidents

New Delhi. There has been a huge increase in the cases of drones being sent from across the border with Pakistan on the western front and the cases of sending narcotics, arms and ammunition through drones have doubled in the year 2022. . This information was given by Pankaj Kumar Singh, Director General, Border Security Force.

The BSF Director General said that the force has recently set up a state-of-the-art laboratory to study drones at a camp in Delhi and the results have been very encouraging. He said on Saturday that security agencies can also keep a watch on the routes of flying drones from across the border and the locations of those involved in this illegal activity.

He said, BSF is facing drone threat for a long time, people with nefarious designs are using drones in new ways. The use of different types of drones is causing problems for us, because less information is available about them and they fly fast and cross the border.

The DG said this while briefing the Union Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla, who was presiding over a program to inaugurate the forensic lab through a webinar session.

Explaining the danger of drones, the DG said that the BSF had detected 79 incidents of drones being flown along the Indo-Pakistan International Border in 2020. Last year their number stood at 109 and this year it has more than doubled to 266. Singh said, Punjab has the highest number of 215 cases of drones being flown… In Jammu, about 22 cases were reported. The problem is serious, he said. We don’t have a solid solution yet. They (drones) bring narcotics, arms and ammunition, counterfeit currency etc.
