‘Spy Pigeon’ Caught From Fishing Boat Off Paradip Coast; Cops To Conduct Forensic Test Today

Paradip: The suspected spy pigeon which was caught from a fishing boat off the Paradip coast, will be sent to the State Forensic laboratory in Bhubaneswar for examination today.

A dog squad and forensic experts have also reached the port town to join the investigation.

The bird fitted with a camera and a microchip was caught from the fishing boat. Police suspected that the bird was being used for spying.

Something is written on the wings of the bird. The language is unknown to the local police.

Some fishermen found the pigeon perched on their trawler while fishing in the sea a few days ago. The bird was captured and handed over to the Marine police in Paradip on Wednesday.

“Our veterinarians will examine the bird. We will seek the help of the State Forensic Science Laboratory for examining the devices attached to its legs. It appears that the devices are a camera and a microchip,” Jagatsinghpur Superintendent of Police Rahul PR said.

“Experts’ help will also be sought to find out what is written,” the SP said.

Pitambar Behera, an employee of the fishing trawler ‘Sarathi’, said he saw the pigeon perched on the boat.

“Suddenly I noticed that some instruments were attached to the bird’s legs. I also found that something is written on its wings. I could understand it as it was not Odia,” Behera said.

He called the pigeon and caught it after the bird came closer. Behera then informed the incident to the owner of the trawler.

The pigeon was found on the trawler when it was anchored around 35 kilometres off the coast from Konark around 10 days back.

Behera said he fed the bird broken rice for the past several days.
