India jail ‘Spy’ pigeon from Pakistan
Indian authorities have reportedly captured a pigeon, which allegedly flee from Pakistan and spying in a border village of Patahnkot in Indian Punjab earlier today. The news quickly sparked on both sides of border. Earlier this week, the Intelligence Bureau (IB) of India, alerted their police on the possibility of militants being active on Jammu and Pathankot areas. The police, when failed to caught any human activity, captured and jailed a pigeon for spying.
Indian newspaper, Times of India reported that the pigeon bore a stamped message in Urdu and a landline telephone number in Pakistan’s district Narowal district. The cops then took the bird to a veterinary hospital in Pathankot for an X-ray. This did not throw up any clues. “Nothing adverse has been found, but we have kept the bird in our custody,” said Pathankot senior superintendent of police (SSP) Rakesh Kaushal.
“This is a rare instance of a bird from Pakistan being spotted here. We have caught a few spies here. The area is sensitive, given its proximity to Jammu, where infiltration is quite common,” said Kaushal to TOI.
