Using of drones for transporting narcotics and arms cross-border is the latest strategy by Pak supported smugglers. The aerial smuggling routes come after India put effective surveillance on the land route. In May last Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) had bust a racket in Ahmadabad using drones for drug smuggling. These drones can pose a threat to national security as they can be used for espionage and sabotage purposes by the enemy States and anti-national and terrorist groups. The recent spotting of drones on the Punjab sector of International Borders it really poses a threat to the security of the country. Though officials have been confident of tackling such threat from air and has been talking of shooting down any air intruder the forays from across the border are on. A few days back one drone even ventured into Indian territory for one kilometer before security agencies sought public cooperation in spotting the intruder. The Punjab Police had recently busted a terrorist module of revived Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF), which was backed by a Pakistan and Germany based terror group that was conspiring to unleash a series of terror strikes in Punjab and its adjoining states. Police has already launched elaborate investigations to account for the weapons consignments apparently smuggled into India from across the border by the two drones recovered near the India-Pakistan border over the last around one month. Police teams are also on the job to ascertain the links of the terror groups involved in sending these drones from Pakistan. The development assumes significance as the state police and the National Investigation Agency (NIA) have found increasing footprints of Khalistani terror in the region, and uncovered new forms of the group’s operations. The proximity of Jammu and Kashmir to Pakistan is much more as compared to Punjab so is the threat perception one cannot over ride.
