The Myanmar Times - - World -

IN­DIAN po­lice said yes­ter­day they have taken a pi­geon into cus­tody af­ter it was found car­ry­ing a warn­ing note to Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi near the na­tion’s heav­ily mil­i­tarised bor­der with Pak­istan.

Bor­der Se­cu­rity Force (BSF) of­fi­cers found the bird at Pathankot, Pun­jab, where Pak­istan-based mil­i­tants launched a deadly at­tack on an air­force base in Jan­uary.

“We took it into cus­tody last evening,” Pathankot po­lice told AFP.

“The BSF found it with a note in Urdu say­ing some­thing like ‘Modi, we’re not the same peo­ple from 1971. Now each and ev­ery child is ready to fight against In­dia’,” Mr Ku­mar said.

Mean­while, fierce fight­ing con­tin­ued on Oc­to­ber 2 when sus­pected mil­i­tants fired on an army camp in In­dian Kash­mir, killing one trooper.

Mil­i­tants tried to break through the camp’s perime­ter in Bara­mulla but were re­pelled by In­dian soldiers, an army of­fi­cial said. –
