Pigeon Arrested on Suspicions of Being a Spy
A pigeon has been detained by police in India after being accused of being a Pakistani spy, according to The Times of India.
The bird, which flew into the home of Geeta Devi, who lives in the Kathua district of Kashmir on May 24, was painted pink and carrying a ring with numbers around its foot.
Senior Superintendent of Kathua Police Shailendra Kumar Mishra says “further investigation is underway.”
British newspaper The Telegraph reports police told The Times of India, “Though birds have no boundaries and many fly across international borders during migration, a coded ring tagged to the captured pigeon's body is a cause for concern as migratory birds don't have such rings.”
The pigeon will remain in police custody until they have finished their investigations.
