Police recovered a balloon that bore a picture of the Pakistani flag painted along with a ‘I love Pakistan’ slogan from a field in Jhande Chak village near Dinanagar on Sunday afternoon.

“A farmer, Balwinder Singh, was playing with his son in his field when he saw the balloon in his field,” Dinanagar assistant superintendent of police Surinder Lamba said.

The farmer immediately informed the police, which rushed to the spot.

The ASP said the balloon is likely to have flown from Pakistan to India.

News of the ‘Pakistani’ balloon caused a little panic in the area as three Pakistani terrorists had attacked the Dinanagar police station a year ago.
