Back on Wednesday, Border Security Force (BSF) troops resorted to firing briefly along the India-Pakistan border in the Jammu district last night after hearing a humming sound which led to suspicion that a drone was flying around. Alert troops fired two rounds on hearing that humming sound coming from a height of about 800 meters in the Akhnoor area.

According to news agency ANI, security personnel were immediately deployed and they followed the anti-drone SOP in the general area.
