Dead bird found fitted with surveillance camera sparks fears of fowl play at India-Pakistan border
A falcon found dead in India near the country’s highly militarised border with Pakistan has sparked alarm after it was found to be fitted with a small surveillance camera.
The bird was found by Indian security forces near the ancient fort city of Jaisalmer in the desert state of Rajasthan, where Indian armed forces regularly conduct war games.
Early suspicions centred around covert spying by Pakistan on its fellow nuclear-armed neighbour, but the effort could be the work of Pakistani hunters, a security force official told AFP. “However, the possibility of it being an espionage attempt from Pakistan cannot be ruled out,” he said.
