A drone from Pakistan was spotted close to the international border in Ferozepur, officials said on Saturday. The unmanned aerial vehicle flew back to Pakistan after the Border Security Force troops fired at it, they said, adding that the BSF personnel fired at least 18 rounds towards the drone.

A search operation is underway, they said. On the night of October 27, the BSF had recovered a huge cache of firearms and ammunition in the Ferozepur sector.
