Indian police detain pigeon with threatening Modi note
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. –
