India arrests another pigeon from Pakistan, Indian Border Security Forces declare pigeon a spy and demand registration of FIR.
Indian border security forces have made a ridiculous claim of arresting and capturing another Pakistani spy pigeon, in which case Indian police have sought the opinion of legal experts to register a case.
India has claimed that the pigeon flew from Wagah area of Pakistan on April 17 to Roranwala area of India, and the Pakistani pigeon landed on the shoulder of a police constable.
When the spy pigeon was inspected by the police, a paper was tied on its leg. A Pakistani mobile number was written on the white paper with the pigeon’s one leg.
The Pakistani mobile number came from the owner of a motor workshop near Jalu Mor, while the owner of the motor workshop also confirmed the disappearance of the pigeon.
Pigeons as Spy in World War Second
The data indicates that how at that time, pigeons were trained for special missions and for the photographing of sensitive sites inside the Soviet Union.
The CIA believed that animals could fulfil “difficult” tasks for their agency’s unique operations at that time.
Inside the headquarters of CIA in Langley, Virginia, there is a museum, but it is sadly closed to the public. During a visit to interview the then-director, I saw something unusual amid all the bugging devices and the spy gadgets.
In Second World War, a British intelligence agency branch – MI14 (d) – started a Secret Pigeon Service as well, which dropped birds in a container with a parachute over the Occupied Europe. One questionnaire was attached with this. There were over 1,000 pigeons returned with the messages, with the details of V1 rocket launch sites and German radar stations.
There was an Operation started at time which was called Tacana would grow out of work done in the 1960s that used different animals. Data reveal the CIA trained a raven to deliver and retrieve little objects of up to 40 grams from the windowsill of inaccessible buildings at that time.
A red flashing laser beam was used to lock the target, and a special lamp would guide the bird back. In one occasion in Europe, the CIA secretly and successfully delivered a spy device by bird to a window.
They also worked at whether migratory birds could place sensors to check whether the enemy had tested chemical weapons or not. at that time there were trials of electric brain stimulation to guide dogs like remotes, although many of the details are still classified.
