Indian police clips wings of Pakistani 'spy pigeon' to stop it flying back to Pakistan
“The wings of the pigeon have been clipped to ensure the suspected spy does not fly back to Pakistan,” The Telegraph India quoted a senior Indian Punjab police official as saying.
“We have sent a preliminary report to the Union home ministry, including an X-ray report of the bird which did not reveal anything suspicious,” the official added.
The Indian Police took the pigeon in custody over espionage charges, following the heightened tensions at border.
A resident of the village in Mukerian near Pathankot, an Indian military base, found a sick looking white pigeon with Urdu inscription written on its wings in his house.
