New Delhi, India: In another failed terror attempt, Pakistan sent a drone over the Gurdaspur region of Punjab, India. On the night of January 8, 2023, the 74th Batallion of the Border Security Forces(BSF) spotted the Pakistani Drone and fired more than 70 rounds in an attempt to shoot down the Drone. However, the Drone managed to escape the Indian territory and reach back to Pakistan, which has added to the worries of Indian security personnel.

As per reports, the Drone intruded the Indian territory late in the night when it was completely dark, and the area usually remains covered under dense fog following the cold winter nights in the Northern parts of India. Thus, Pakistan used this darkness and fog as a shield to send the drones and remain unspotted, but the Indian Border Security forces had spotted the Drone twice from their post, thereby following the quickest attempt to shoot it down to the ground.

Pakistan has been following a similar strategy and tactics to infiltrate the Indian borders and gain insider information about the whereabouts and the updates of the security personnel at the Indian borders. Considering the 553 kilometres long international border that Punjab shares with Pakistan, covering seven districts of Punjab, the areas remain under the highest alert around the times of the new year.

It is noteworthy that in the previous year, Pakistan sent around 250 drones to Indian territory, out of which the Indian security personnel had shot down 17 drones. Multiple incidents have been reported about Pakistan using these drones to deliver arms and weapons along with drugs to the perpetrators.

Considering the statistics, the Gurdaspur and Amritsar regions of Punjab have been the most affected by the Pakistani drone intrusion, especially during the winter months.

The Security forces have been indulged in strategies to control the cross-border drone infiltrations as well as capturing the perpetrators that are helping these Pakistani forces to conduct their operations in the Indian territories.

Pakistan has previously sent their drones to the Indian state of Punjab in an attempt to create instability and terrorise the citizens. In 2022 alone, more than 200 drones were spotted flying over the border districts of Punjab.

Not so long, on December 19, a Pakistani drone was spotted near the BSF’s Chandu Wadala border post, which the security forces had made to retreat to Pakistan.
