A pigeon, apparently from across the border, was taken into custody after a letter written in Urdu and addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi was found with it by BSF personnel at Simbal post in Bamial sector on Sunday. The development comes after two balloons were recovered with a similar message in the area on Saturday.

Police said the message written on a piece of paper read: “Modi Ji, do not consider us same people as we were during 1971 (Indo-Pak war). Now each and every child is ready to fight against India.”

 

The grey-coloured pigeon was found by BSF near their post, Inspector of Narot Jaimal Singh Police Station (Pathankot), Ramesh Kumar said.

“The pigeon was carrying the letter when it was found,” he said, adding the bird has been taken into “custody”.

“We are investigating the matter,” Kumar said.

    India should immediately declare war on stan for this avian intrusion of Indian air space. The pigeons may be carrying avian flu. This is a direct attack on our beloved PM Shri Shri Narendra ModiJI. This is an ination attempt.

            PARIKAR is the most happiest. He is thinking he has got an excellent bargain. His motor mouth will say tomorrow, "we have got high value intelligence input from the pigeons and based on that we are making more Surgical strikes". Thank you pigeons.
