JAMMU, Mar 22: A massive search operation was launched today after the Border Security Force (BSF) fired at a Pakistani drone along the International Border in Samba district.
The BSF troops manning the Chamliyal border post in Ramgarh sub-sector picked up a blinking red light in the air, believed to be a drone, from Pakistan around 2.30 am and fired over two dozen rounds to bring it down, the officials said.
They said the suspected drone returned to the Pakistani side.
A massive search operation was launched in the forward villages adjoining Chamliyal, Supwal and Narayanpur border outposts to ensure that there was no dropping of any weapons or narcotics.
The open fields in Dug, Channi-Supwal and Asampur villages are also being searched by the BSF personnel who were deployed in strength for the operation.
