Indian police said Monday they have taken a pigeon into custody after it was found carrying a warning note to Prime Minister Narendra Modi near the nation's heavily militarised border with Pakistan.

Border Security Force (BSF) officers found the bird at Pathankot in the northern state of Punjab, where Pakistan-based militants launched a deadly attack on an airforce base in January.

"We took it into custody last evening," Pathankot police inspector Rakesh Kumar told AFP by telephone.

"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'," Kumar said.

The neigbours fought their third and last full-blown war in 1971.

The note was apparently signed by the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba "so we are investigating the matter very seriously", Kumar said.

How do you arrest a pigeon ? Do you agree that the pigeon is innocent in all this and must be released…

Too bad the pigeon failed in its "mission." Guess the media now has something to talk about.
