According to Agence France-Presse (AFP) news agency, Border Security Force (BSF) officers found the pigeon in the northern state of Punjab, where clashes between Indian and Pakistani troops have intensified.
“We took it into custody last evening,” a police investigator told the news agency. “The BSF found it with a note in Urdu saying something like ‘Modi, we’re not the same people from 1971. Now each and every child is ready to fight against India’.”
The note was apparently signed by the banned Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
On Sept. 23, a bird was found in Hoshiarpur district with “some words written in Urdu,” the newspaper reported.
“We are investigating the matter,” inspector Ramesh Kumar told the Express.
According to AFP, two balloons were also recently found in Punjab with similar notes addressed to the prime minister.
