An Indian drone camera was shot down by Pakistan Army Saturday evening as it intruded close to 60 metres into Pakistani side of the Line of Control (LoC).
The army’s media wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement that the quadcopter was taken down by the troops near Agahi post in Rakhchakri sector.
Inter-Services Public Relations chief Lt Gen Asim Bajwa said the quadcopter was brought down over violation of Pakistan’s territorial integrity and that it has been “taken over” by Pakistani forces.
This comes a day after Pakistan’s navy said it had pushed an Indian submarine away from Pakistani waters.
This is not the first suspected spy drone shot down in Pakistani territory originating out of India. Last year in July, Pakistan military shot down Indian ‘spy drone’ which violated the Pakistan air space along the LoC in Bhimber, Azad Kasmir.
The military maintains that the ‘spy drones’ are used for aerial photography.
Earlier in the day, four children were killed and three others injured by Indian forces along the Line of Control (LOC) in Azad Kashmir.
