"On specific information of BSF regarding the crossing of arms/ammunition through drone from Samba border area. As per input, BSF troops carried out a search operation in the general area of the Samba sector on May 14.

After taking all precautionary measures, troops opened the wrapped packet and found an AK-47, a pistol, a magazine, 15 rounds of 9 mm, a wooden frame (used to attach the payload with drone) and the wrapping material. The site was around 250 metre from the international border inside the Indian Territory," reads a BSF statement. "The efforts of alert BSF troops deployed in the multi-tiered grid have once again resulted in neutralizing the designs of Pakistan ANEs activities with deep connivance of Pakistan Rangers.
