Alert sounded as Pakistan flag attached to green balloons found in Uttarakhand forest | Dehradun News


UTTARKASHI: A Pakistan flag, a few banners of the Lahore Bar Association and some papers with Urdu writings, fastened to around a hundred green balloons (most of them deflated, only around a dozen intact) were found in a forested region of Tulyada village in Chinyalisaur block of Uttarkashi district on Friday.
Villagers, who stumbled upon the objects, informed police after which cops reached the site and took the suspected objects in custody.
Superintendent of police (SP), Uttarkashi, Arpan Yaduvanshi, said, “The place from where the flag and banners have been found is a remote area near the Uttarkashi-Tehri border. This place is also very far from the closest international border, which is the India-China border. It seems impossible that the balloons flew all the way from the other side of the border.”
Police said the matter is now being probed by national security agencies.
Uttarkashi district shares its border with China in the Gangotri Himalaya region. The aerial distance between Chinyalisaur and the China border is around 70km.
