Border Security Force jawans in Amritsar, Punjab, thwarted a terror attempt late on Tuesday when a drone dropped explosives at the Panjgrahian border outpost in Ajnala Tehsil.
Alert jawans immediately opened fire at the drone. However, it managed to fly away towards Pakistan.
Soon after the incident, the BSF combed the area for any suspicious activity and found explosives at two spots. A larger search operation has now been launched.
Drones are regularly used by terror outfits from across the border to send explosives, weapons, cash, and drugs to India. Security forces have become more alert and often conduct anti-drone exercises along India's borders.
