The Border Security Force (BSF) has recovered 6 kilogram of heroin that was smuggled to India from Pakistan with the help of a drone in Punjab's Amritsar.
The Border Security Force (BSF) in their statement said that on the intervening night of September 9 and 10, a patrolling team recovered six packets of suspected heroin near the border fence in the Amritsar sector.
Vigilant forward troops heard the buzzing sound of the drone, and as per drills, the troops fired on the object which went towards the Pakistan area, the statement added.
