Panchi, nadiya, pawan ke jhonke, koi sarhad na inhein rokein .
Except of course, if you’re a spy.
This was proved recently, when a pigeon was taken into police custody in the border village of Pathankot, Punjab . Why? Because according to the reports, the bird was wearing a wire like object and had Urdu markings on it’s tail. Not only that, there seemed to be a number scribbled on it which seemed to be a Pakistani telephone number.
Apparently, the bird landed on the mud house of a barber Ramesh Chandra in the Manwal village which is just 4 kms from the Pakistan border . Seeing the markings on the bird, Ramesh’s son took the pigeon to the nearest police station.
Even Pakistani news channels reported the incident. BTW, it’s claims, not claim, bro .
Needless to say, the pigeons are now terrified of taking any sort of messages anywhere.
