Police in India took a pigeon into custody Monday after the bird was found carrying a warning note to the country’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

According to Agence France-Presse (AFP) news agency, Border Security Force (BSF) officers found the pigeon in the northern state of Punjab, where clashes between Indian and Pakistani troops have intensified.

“We took it into custody last evening,” a police investigator told the news agency. “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’.”

The note was apparently signed by the banned Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba.

According to English language newspaper The Indian Express, this is the second time in just over a week a pigeon has been found with some sort of note apparently sent from Pakistan.

On Sept. 23, a bird was found in Hoshiarpur district with “some words written in Urdu,” the newspaper reported.

“We are investigating the matter,” inspector Ramesh Kumar told the Express.
