Punjab has been put on high alert after an improvised explosive device (IED) was found in a child's tiffin box at Daleke village in Amritsar.
The tiffin box was delivered by a drone that is suspected to have come from Pakistan.
"Some recoveries were made yesterday in Amritsar (rural) which include 5 grenades, Improvised Explosive Device (IED)-fitted tiffin boxes and 100 rounds of 9 mm pistol. As per our assessment, these bombs were delivered via a drone from across the border," Punjab DGP Dinkar Gupta said during the press conference.
"There is pressure from across the border on outfits which are involved in anti-national and militant activities to carry out some terrorist actions before Independence Day," Gupta further said.
According to the preliminary report of the National Security Guard (NSG) the IED consists of 2-3 kgs of RDX. "The state will remain on high alert. We have also increased the checking," Gupta said.
