On 09th February 2024 during the night hours, vigilant BSF troops on duty intercepted movement of a suspected drone on the border near Village Rossey in district Gurdaspur. The troops intercepted the drone and successfully shot it.
The damaged drone lost control and fell in a farming field. The likely dropping area was immediately cordoned by the BSF troops and an extensive search was carried out in which BSF troops successfully recovered 01 small drone in partially broken condition.
The recovered drone is a Quadcopter (Model - DJI Mavic 3 Classic, made in China).
Keen observation and quick response with exemplary shooting skills of the BSF troops made yet another dent on the malicious plans of adversaries to create mayhem in the border area by drone intrusion.
