india Updated: Feb 09, 2011 20:30 IST

BSF has captured a hawk fitted with some transmitter-like instrument near Indo-Pakistan border recently, an official said on Wedneday.

"We are verifying whether the bird was sent over for spying on Indian territory or accidentally flew in here. The instrument is also being examined," DIG BSF B R Meghwal said.

According to official sources, few hawks trained for espionage purpose and fitted with antenna and other equipment have been caught in the past too.
