It is not first time when a balloon with a message was found in Dinanagar. Soon after the July terror attack, a balloon was found in a nearby village which had “I love Pakistan” scrawled on it. At the time, security agencies believed the balloon, with its innocuous message, had floated across the border.

In Pathankot, a balloon was found in Narot Jaimal village with the message Bharat Hamse Ladna Nahi lad Sakta-
Pakistani Awam (India cannot fight with us- Pakistani people). The place where it was found touches the border.

“We have been investigating it,” said Rakesh Kaushal, SSP Pathankot.
