      I dont get the 'deeper' thoughd behind this spy pigeon .
      A pigeon can take a message to its original home ..but it doesnt deliver at just any adress in india lol so it seems like our indian police friends are drinking way to much Fanta lately .

            The Article is funny and the way it is written out and commented on is hilarious.
            However on a more serious note Piegons have routinely been used in the Indian subcontinent as a means of communication since ancient times. South Asia(Both India and Pakistan) have a long tradition in breeding pigeons for that express purpose and are very proficent in that art and I do not see any reason why piegeions could not be used to convey messages.

            After the terrorist incident in Mumbai Pakistani intelligence are well aware that Indian intelligence was able to hone in on most of the cell phone conversation between the Pakistan based terrorists operating in Mumbai and their masterminds in Pakistan.

            Considering all these factors it is not at all unlikely that small scale intelligence gathering could be done by people employing highly trained pigeons. Both India and Pakistan maintain very strong intelligence gathering apparatus against each other spanning a large spectrum. From the simple low tech- to the latest in high tech and both countries have penetrated each others security apparatus to a large extent using any possible means available to them.
            You have to remember Both India and Pakistan share the Province/state of Punjab and cities and towns acroos the Borders are sometimes seperated by distances measured in Yards.

            Considering these factors it is not unlikely that pigeons could be employed to transmit messages. And the respective intelligence agencies would be fools to not take this matter seriously.

              pigeons been used for ages true .. but a pigeon can only find its way home ..you cant tell it to fly to just any adress so communication is always one way . Agents need to bring pigeons from the loft wich is their original home in pakistan to release them in india ..as the bird was carrying no message it seems more likely the bird is just a racing bird lost or fouraging there .. A specialist being able to tell where a specific pigeon is just from its shape is ridicilous ..like beers most modern racing pigeons originate from mostly belgium ancestors ..those are hardly ever snowwhite too .
              Therefore i think this a case of drinking too much fanta and too much cold war suspicion

                I am no pigeon expert so my opinion should be taken with a grain of salt but I have seen some pigeon breedors and trainers whose talents would make one hold ones breadth. And again It would be stupid for any intelligence agencies to ignore even some of the most mundane and inconspicuous methods-many a times it is those methods that go entirely unnoticed.
                At the same time Indian police is not very famous either for employing the Brightest -so I guess it is a toss.

                but regardless that article was definately worth a good laugh.

                  nowadays its so much easier having internet ..using a bunch of proxies from a internet cafe would be so much more easy and hardly detectable too ...or even a foreign cellphone wich can smuggled over Indias borders rectally ...carrying a large white pigeon there in the same way would be highly uncomfortable

                  There have been some highly decorated pigeons in both WW1 and WW2 .
