The pigeon was found by the Border Security Force in India’s northern Punjab state near the scene of a recent attack on an air force base by Pakistani-based militants.

“We took it into custody last evening,” Pathankot police inspector Rakesh Kumar told AFP. “The BSF found it with a note in Urdu saying something like 'Modi, we're not the same people from 1971. Now each and every child is ready to fight against India.' Click To Tweet
The note was signed by the Pakistani-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, Kumar added.

This was not the first time a bird was found carrying a message for Modi. Last year Indian authorities captured a pigeon they believed might be carrying a camera or some kind of transmitter.
