Spy Pi­geon

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

A14-year-old boy handed over a pi­geon to the lo­cal po­lice af­ter dis­cov­er­ing var­i­ous Urdu mark­ings on its wings along with a Pak­istani tele­phone num­ber. In an in­ter­est­ing turn of events, po­lice of­fi­cers have since then la­beled the pi­geon a ‘spy’ from Pak­istan, ow­ing to the sus­pi­cious writ­ing.

The bird was found in an area close to the bor­der be­tween Pak­istan and In­dia where con­stant mil­i­tary con­fronta­tion ex­ists be­tween the two coun­tries. The lo­cal po­lice has so far de­tained the pi­geon for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion af­ter con­duct­ing a thor­ough X-ray to look for other sus­pi­cious ma­te­rial on the bird.
