A pigeon was captured on Monday in a village near the India-Pakistan border with a ring in its feet that had allegedly cryptic alphanumeric code. Officials believe the bird to be trained by Pakistan for espionage purposes.
According to reports, the pigeon was captured by locals of the Manyari village, in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir. The bird was found to have a ring in its feet with alphabets written in it and was handed over to the local authorities by the villagers. An investigation is reportedly on the way to decipher a ‘coded message.’
Kathua Police Superintendent told ANI, they don’t know where the bird has come from, adding that it was captured in their side of the fence.
The policeman also added that an operation group from Jammu & Kashmir, that deals with such cases of infiltration has been ‘imitated’ about the case and they’re looking into it.
