Indian police take pigeon into custody
The bird was found with a note to PM Narendra Modi warning that all children are ready for war.
JOHANNESBURG - Indian police 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.
Police have told news agency AFP that the note warned that every child is ready to fight against India.
It's not the first time birds have become embroiled in the often deadly decades-old rivalry between the two nuclear-armed nations.
But it comes as tensions escalate over a raid on an Indian army base in Kashmir two weeks ago that New Delhi blamed on the same militant group held responsible for the attacks in January.
