However the Chairman of the Non-Governmental Organization SAVE, Narmata Hakhoo informed Deputy Commissioner of Police about certain suspicious rings in the claws of the captured pigeons. Alarmed, Police carried out a probe only to find nothing suspicious about the pigeons.
It later came out that the owner of the NGO, Namrata Hakhoo used the ‘Pigeon Politics’ of the two warring neighbors simply to seek a little limelight.
The seizure of pigeons suspected of being used for spying is not unique in the disputed Kashmir region. Pigeons flying across the border are under the radar of security agencies after the tension between India and Pakistan escalated in recent months. Recently the Indian Border Security Force arrested a pigeon carrying a message written in Urdu, which read, “Modi (Indian Prime Minister) do not consider us the same people as we were during 1971 war. Now each and every Pakistani child is ready to fight against India.”
