Authorities in Indian-occupied Kashmir have seized a plane-shaped balloon bearing the name of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA). The balloon featuring the name, logo and livery colours of the national flag-carrier was found in Sotra Chak village of Hiranagar and was reported to the police after locals spotted it. Authorities have seized the balloon, while the matter is under police investigation.
It wasn’t immediately known where the balloon came from.
In 2015, a pigeon was captured by Indian forces for crossing the Indo-Pak border into India’s Pathankot area.
Last year in May, Indian Border Security Forces (BSF) claimed to have captured another “Pakistani spy pigeon” and handed it over to police in occupied Kashmir.
