5 kg heroin dropped by Pakistani drone seized in Punjab’s Tarn Taran


The Border Security Force (BSF) personnel seized 5kg of heroin dropped by a Pakistani drone from a farming field near Khalra village falling under the Bhikhiwind sub-division.

The contraband was packed in two packets which were further attached with an iron hook mostly used for hanging from drones.

Divulging more, a BSF spokesperson said, “At around 10:30 am, on specific information, the alert troops, while carrying out area domination patrol on our side of the border fence, observed two suspicious big size bags wrapped with yellow adhesive tape attached with a metal ring lying in a farming field near village Khalra.”

“Further, on the opening of these two bags, the BSF troops recovered two packets of narcotics suspected to be heroin in each bag (gross wt appx 5.120kg).”

The seizure comes a day after a Chinese drone was recovered from a farming field in the Bhikhiwind sub-division after it was shot down by the BSF troopers. The drone was recovered during a joint search operation by BSF and Punjab Police officials.
