The Border Security Force (BSF) shot down a drone along the Indo-Pakistan border in Punjab, the force said on Saturday.

The Chinese-made drone was “detected and shot down” on Friday around 11:10 pm near the Wan border post in the Ferozepur area, he said in a statement.

The black colored flying object was shot down at a distance of about 300 meters from the international border and 150 meters from the border fence, the BSF said.

He said the drone, a hexacopter with four batteries, weighed around 23kg and could carry a payload of around 10kg.

However, it did not carry any payload such as drugs, weapons, or ammunition.

The BSF said a search operation is underway in the area of ​​the incident

The border guard force in the past shot down two such drones originating in Pakistan and carrying weapons and ammunition.

Both incidents took place in the border area of ​​Punjab.

BSF Managing Director (CEO) Pankaj Kumar Singh told reporters on November 30 that there had been a total of 67 drone sightings along the border in the Punjab and Jammu regions this year.

“Right now the frequency of drones arriving in our country is quite low and it’s mostly made in China drones … they’re very good … and carry small payloads and in 95 % of cases, they carry drugs, “said the CEO on the eve of the 57th Force Mobilization Day.
