Pakistani troops on Wednesday shot down an Indian drone that violated the country’s airspace along the Line of Control (LoC), the military’s media wing said.
The drone was brought down in the Rakhchikri Sector of the heavily militarised zone after it intruded 650 metres into the Pakistani territory, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) DG Major General Babar Iftikhar said in a statement.
This is not the first occasion when Pakistan’s military had to respond to Indian violations as it also shot down a similar quadcopter that intruded 600 metres inside Pakistan’s territory in Sankh sector last month.
“Such unwarranted acts by the Indian Army are a clear violation of established norms and existing air agreements between the two nuclear-armed neighbours. It also reflects the Indian Army’s consistent disregard to the ceasefire understanding of 2003,” the military’s media wing had said after the incident.
