Earlier, it was found along the International Border, in the Balwal area of Jammu on 16th March 2021 when the same kind of PIA Airplane shaped Balloon was spotted by villagers in the area and they informed the Police who reached the spot and took that into custody. In another incident on 26th March 2021 in the Dera Baba Nanak area in the Batala Police district of Punjab when another PIA Airplane shaped Balloon was found and later handed over to Police.
