This is the fifth Pakistani drone shot down by BSF troops in the past four days.
According to BSF reports, BSF troops deployed in the Bhaini Rajputana area near Amritsar successfully fired at a suspected Pakistani drone after hearing a soft buzz on the night of 22 May.
Upon further investigation, the BSF recovered a black DJI Matrice 300 RTK quadcopter, along with a shipment containing two packages weighing approximately 2.1kg of suspected heroin from the agricultural fields of Bhaini Rajputana village.
In particular, the shipment was equipped with a small flashlight to be easily identified by smugglers.
This incident follows a string of previous drone intrusions, including one on May 21 in which a consignment of approximately 3.3 kg of heroin was seized and three incidents on May 19 in which two drones were shot down and recovered 2.5 kg of heroin.
The drones infiltrated Indian territory near Udhar Dhariwal village and Rattan Khurd village in Amritsar district. A drone from the May 19 incidents came down on the Pakistani side.
