A pigeon carrying a threatening message for India’s Prime Minister has been taken into custody after being discovered near the country’s border with Pakistan.
The grey pigeon was found with a message referring to the 1971 war between Pakistan and India and was addressed to PM Narendra Modi.
The letter, which was written in Urdu, was roughly translated as: “Modi, we’re not the same people from 1971. Now each and every child is ready to fight against India.”
The bird was found at Pathankot in the northern state of Punjab, where militants based in Pakistan launched a deadly attack on an airforce base in January.
Inspector of Narot Jaimal Singh police station (Pathankot) Ramesh Kumar said: “The pigeon was carrying the letter when it was found,” he said, adding the bird has been taken into “custody”. We are investigating the matter.”
The note was apparently signed by the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Two balloons with messages written in Urdu and addressed to Modi were found at Ghesal village in Dinanagar of Gurdaspur, which had witnessed a terror attack last year.Source
