Chinese drones carrying drugs often intrude into India, says BSF DG

On Tuesday, Pankaj Kumar Singh, director-general (DG) of the Border Security Force (BSF), said that in 95 percent of cases, Chinese-made drones carrying drugs are flying across the border into Punjab and Jammu regions, and technology solutions are being looked into.  

While addressing the media during the eve of the 57th Raising Day of the Border Security Force (BSF), the BSF chief said that at least 67 drones have been spotted this year till now along the western border of India with Pakistan. “Right now, the frequency of drones that are coming to our country are fairly small and these are by-and-large Chinese-made drones, they are good and carrying small payloads and in 95 percent cases they are carrying drugs,” DG Singh said. 

He further said that BSF is looking for inexpensive tech solutions regarding smart fencing, sensors, radars, and even countering the drones or the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs) threat.  

The Border Security Force (BSF) has a strength of about 2.65 lakh soldiers currently. It was established on December 1, 1965, to guard 6300 Km of the border of India with Pakistan and Bangladesh.
