BSF Demands FIR Against 'Pigeon From Pakistan'; Bird In Police Custody
In a one-of-a-kind case, the Border Security Force (BSF) on Wednesday sought registration of an FIR against an avian intruder from Pakistan— a pigeon. At the moment, the bird is in police custody, officials said.
BSF personnel deployed at the Rorawala post in Amritsar found the pigeon with a small piece of paper tied to its leg last Sunday. The BSF has claimed that the bird flew from across the border.
Considering the unique circumstances of the case, Punjab Police have sought legal opinion on whether an FIR can be filed. Police are also analysing the number written on the piece of paper tied to the bird's leg.
