Earlier this month, the BSF foiled another drug haul and foiled a trans-border smuggling attempt by Pakistan. The Border Security Force (BSF) recovered yet another Pakistani drone with one packet suspected to be heroin from a paddy field on the outskirts of Dhaone Khurd village in Amritsar.
In September, the Border Security Force recovered a drone and a bottle containing heroin from the paddy fields near the Rajatal village in Amritsar. The heroin weighed 0.545 Kg.
