It's a bird, it's a plane...it's a PIA balloon?

In a bizarre turn of events, authorities in Indian-Occupied Kashmir claim to have seized a plane-shaped balloon bearing the name of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), Indian news agency ANI reported on Wednesday.

According to the report, a balloon featuring the name, logo and colours of Pakistan's national flag-carrier was found in Sotra Chak village of Hiranagar sector on Tuesday evening. The matter is now under police investigation — and Twitter is having a ball.

It all started when comedian Ali Gul Pir wanted to #freetheballoon.

A new investigation

Classic

Unbelievable

Points were raised

And secrets revealed

India is horrified of anything with name Pakistan associated with it, even if it is the wind blowing East from Pakistan.
