Amritsar: An ‘unidentified flying object’ (UFO) was spotted near the Indo-Pak international border in Pathankot district late on Thursday night, following which Border Security Force (BSF) and police conducted a joint search operation in the border area but didn’t find anything objectionable.
A senior BSF official who didn’t wish to be named said the flying object was spotted between the international border and border fence in Pathankot district, following which BSF troops fired two rounds, forcing the flying object to return.
Senior superintendent of police (SSP) Pathankot Gulneet Singh Khurana informed that police didn’t find anything in the search operation conducted on Friday after the flying object was spotted.
In the past, there was a spurt in incidents of spotting of drones originating from Pakistan, which were observed in Gurdaspur district.
“We are not sure it was a drone but a flying object and are investigating,” said the BSF official. tnn
