India claimed to have detained a “Pakistani spy pigeon” who is said to have a ring carrying a telephone number.
The pigeon, “with a prominent pink patch and a tag on its leg”, was logged at the police station as a “suspected Pakistani spy”, said NDTV.
According to the reports, Police records said the pigeon flew into the house of a woman in Chadwal area, the district of Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday. A senior police official said the ring had a phone number written on it. However, apart from the ring, the police found nothing else and said they found nothing unusual.
The village head handed the pigeon to Indian Border Security Force (BSF) who in turn handed the bird to the local police in Hira Nagar Police Station.
India in the past had also accused Pakistan of using pigeons for ‘espionage purposes’.
India in 2016, had also accused Pakistan of using pigeons for ‘espionage purposes’. Indian authorities claimed a pigeon they caught in Pathankot carried a message stamped in Urdu.
Similarly, in October next year, Indian police officials clipped the wings of a pigeon they had caught in Bamial village with a similar message to prevent it from ‘escaping’.
