Police in the Indian state of Punjab has alleged that Pakistan recently used a drone to drop weapons in the area. Islamabad has yet to comment on the claims.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Indian police claim a Pakistani drone was linked to the capture of a terror cell allegedly affiliated to the Khalistan Zindabad Force on Sunday.
The Khalistan Zindabad Force is a banned militant group that has been fighting for the creation of a separate independent state of Khalistan for the Sikh community since 1988 when terrorism was at its peak in the state of Punjab.
The warning by state police led Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on 22 September to urge the central government to alert the country’s air force and paramilitary Border Security Force (BSF) about the possibility of drones being used to supply weapons from across the border.
Those arrested are currently in jail in Amritsar city. Pakistani officials have yet to respond to the claims.
