Another nefarious act of Pakistan, which is trying to spread terror from across the border, has come to the fore in Jammu and Kashmir. Police in Jammu and Kashmir have recovered a consignment of weapons dropped by a Pakistani drone near the International Border. An AK rifle, three magazines, 30 bullets and a telescope were recovered from the packet dropped by a Pakistani drone, officials said on Sunday.
He said the recovery was made from Saunjana village of Phalain mandal, about six km from the International Border. Late on Saturday night, a villager, after hearing a voice, informed the police about a payload being dropped by a suspected drone from the Pakistan side. Officials said the police immediately cordoned off the village and launched a search operation, during which a yellow packet tied with wire and a wooden base to carry the payload was found, in which arms and ammunition were recovered.
