Ferozpur: A drone from Pakistan's side was spotted in Punjab's Ferozpur district, according to BSF sources. The drone was sighted at Hazara Singh Wala in Firozepur district on October 14, they said. In order to deal with the intrusion of drones from the Pakistani side, the BSF is all set to purchase the ground-based anti-drone system.
The system will have jammers and sensors amongst other features and will have a 360-degree surveillance system. The anti-drone system will be able to work day and night and will detect multiple drones at a time. There has almost been intrusion every day by drones sent by Pakistan to India.
These drones are being used to transport arms and ammunition to the country. Meanwhile, Pakistan summoned India's Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia to protest over alleged ceasefire violations by Indian troops along the Line of Control (LoC) that killed three civilians.
The Foreign Office said that Director-General (South Asia and SAARC) Mohammad Faisal summoned Ahluwalia and condemned the ceasefire violations by the Indian troops in Nezapir Sector of the LoC on Tuesday. Pakistan alleged that in the "unprovoked firing" by the Indian forces, three civilians were killed and eight others, including women and children were injured.
