  • Balloon spotted in Arnia district, India-occupied Kashmir.
  • The balloon was seized by Indian security officials and sent for analysis.
  • Heightened security measures come as a result of “suspected” drone activity within the area.

A “balloon-like” object with photos of Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Pakistan Zindabad written on it has sparked panic among Indian officials within occupied Kashmir, reported News 18

Earlier today, a balloon was found floating near the Tamalla Nallah area of Arnia district in Indian occupied Kashmir.

The harmless balloon with pictures of Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Pakistan Zindabad inscribed on it sparked alarm amongst Indian officials.

It is reported that the police have seized the object and have sent the balloon for analysis.

Heightened security measures and alarm has been attributed to a suspected “spurt” in drone activity within the area. 

In March, a similar report surfaced, of an aircraft-shaped balloon found in occupied Kashmir with PIA’s markings.

According to Indian news agency ANI, the balloon, green and white in colour and with PIA logos on it, was found in the Sotra Chak village in Hiranagar sector of Indian-occupied Kashmir.

The news agency reported that residents of the area had raised the alarm and alerted the police to the balloon’s presence after spotting it floating in the area.

ANI reported that Indian police immediately reached the spot and seized the balloon. A probe was launched to investigate its origin.
