The Border Security Force (BSF) has shot down a drone near the International Border in Punjab's Tarn Taran district and seized three kg narcotics that it was carrying.

"At about 9 p.m. on Sunday, BSF troops deployed at the border heard the buzzing sound of a drone entering India from Pakistan near Kalash village in Tarn Taran district," a BSF official said.

A joint search operation with Punjab Police was carried out in the area on Monday morning.

During the search, troops found a large consignment suspected to be heroin in a packet wrapped in yellow tape from the fields.
