One of the BSF officials said: "The awareness campaign is being conducted so that villagers can inform security forces if they spot a drone."
Many villagers expressed their excitement on seeing the devices stating that they had seen drones for the first time.
One of the locals present at the event said: "We have seen drones for the first time. If there is any drone in our area carrying drugs or weapons, we will immediately alert the authorities.
