Chandigarh, Dec 22 (UNI) Barely 48 hours after the recovery of 11 HG Arges 84 hand grenades, the Punjab Police on Tuesday recovered an AK-47 rifle and a magazine with 30 live cartridges, evidently a part of the same consignment that was dropped by the Pak drone in BOP Chakri (PS Dorangala) area in Gurdaspur district on Sunday.
The seizure comes amid concerns raised by Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh of fresh spurt of efforts by Pakistan-based militants to disturb the border state’s peace. The Chief Minister had recently also met Union Home Minister Amit Shah in this regard.
According to Punjab DGP, Dinkar Gupta, an extensive search operation had been launched by the Gurdaspur police in the area where the drone, which was fired at by the police and the BSF, was sighted. He said the package containing the assault rifle appeared to have been dropped in the wheat fields in the area of village Wazir Chak, 1.5 km from village Salach, PS Dorangla (Gurdaspur).
