Last month, assault rifles and other weapons, ammunition and satellite phones were dropped by drones from Pakistan into Punjab. Drones also made multiple sorties over a month to deliver weapons.  
The weapon payload was to be handed over to terrorists who were to carry out terror strikes in the country.

According to sources, the drone spotted last night was seen entering the Indian side, after which the security agencies were alerted of the intrusion. The drone flew for around 40 minutes past 10 pm on Monday night. Past midnight at around 12.25 am, BSF personnel saw the drone entering the Indian side.
