Bikaner, May 17 (HS): Pakistani smugglers have once again sent drugs to India, upon getting a clue of which the Border Security Force (BSF) fired and recovered more than five kg of drugs. Its value in the international market is estimated to be around Rs 25 crore. BSF’s Bikaner Range DIG Pushpendra Singh has reached the spot.
BSF sources said that the Bikaner range had an inkling that there could be infiltration in the Gharsana-Anupgarh area of Shriganganagar. On this the patrolling was increased there. When there was an act here late on Tuesday night at around 2 pm, the BSF jawans became active. Firing started. After firing about 42 rounds, the jawans have received some packets. Drugs are being told in these packets. This drug of about five to six kg can be worth Rs 25 to 30 crore.
It is also feared that weapons may have been sent from these packets. The intelligence wing of BSF had received reports about some suspicious activities on both the other side and this side of the border falling under the range. Based on this report, the jawans were put on alert mode.
The drone flies from the Pakistani side and crosses the barricade and enters the Indian border. Automatically the packets attached to the drone are dropped and the drone goes back to the Pakistan border. BSF has also recovered some drones earlier. This time also the drone has been brought down. No one was injured in BSF firing. Due to darkness, more firing had to be done.
According to Pushpendra Singh, DIG of Bikaner Range, the jawans have shown tremendous courage in this action. Drugs are suspected in the packets found. The drugs coming from the Indian side of the border are also being traced.
