RAWALPINDI - Pakistan Army on Friday shot down an Indian drone that intruded into Pakistani territory over Line of Control.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the spy drone was downed in Rakhchikri sector of the Line of Control (LoC). “Indian quadcopter spying across LoC in Rakhchikri sector shot down by Pakistan Army shooters. Wreckage held,” ISPR Director General Maj-Gen Asif Ghafoor tweeted.

This is not the first time that Pakistan Army has shot down an Indian drone. Last year in November, a similar UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) that intruded into Pakistan airspace was shot down in the same sector. The spy drone intruded 60 metres into the Pakistani side and crashed near the Aagahi post around 4:45pm, then ISPR spokesperson Gen Asim Bajwa posted on Twitter.
