A senior police officer said, “This delivery was meant for a terrorist, Ali Bhai. The payload was carrying his name,” and added that “the drone is 8-feet wide from blade-to-blade and seems to have been controlled by a Pakistani picket opposite Panesar post of the BSF formation in Kathua sector,”.

At around 5:10 AM today, the drone was seen hovering in the skies by a BSF patrol. The BSF personnel fired 9 round at the drone which was flying 250 metres inside the Indian territory.

The J & K Police said that a few months earlier, weapons of the same make were recovered from the terrorists of Jaish-e-Mohammed which were killed near Jammu region.

The officer added, “Similar attempts to smuggle weapons have been foiled earlier in other areas bordering Pakistan, especially in Kupwara, Rajouri and Jammu sectors,”.
