Pigeon Held Under Armed Guard Under Espionage Offences


Recommended Posts

A pigeon is doing bird under armed guard in an Indian prison after it was caught on an alleged spying mission for neighbouring Pakistan.


Officers say the feathered spook was captured by residents of a border town in Punjab state's Amritsar district.


They found it "peculiar", said district police chief Gurmeet Singh Chohan. A Pakistani address stamped on its wings worried residents last week who then brought the bird to the police.


"In an era of spy planes and satellites, the Amritsar (rural) police have detained a white pigeon that could have been -- the police claim -- used as a Pakistani spy," wrote the Hindustan Times in a page-one story Saturday.


Officials have directed that no one should be allowed to visit the pigeon, which police say may have been on a "special mission of spying".


The bird has been medically examined and is being kept in an air-conditioned room.
