“Pakistan Army troops shot down an Indian spying quadcopter in Rakhchikri Sector along LoC. The quadcopter had intruded 650 meters on Pakistan’s side of the LoC,” Major General Babar Iftikhar, Director General of the army’s media wing the Inter-Services Public Relations said in a brief statement.

It is the second time Pakistan army has shot down Indian spy quadcopter in less than two months. The Pakistan Army said on April 9 that it has shot down an Indian spying quadcopter in Sankh sector along the LoC after it committed airspace violation.

Pakistan and India had declared ceasefire along the LoC, the de facto border between both countries in the disputed Kashmir region and the working boundary in 2003. However, both sides routinely exchange fire and accuse each other of ceasefire violations.

Tension has been heightened after India lifted special status for the Indian-occupied Kashmir in August, 2019. In its reaction, Pakistan downgraded its diplomatic relations, suspended trade relations and train service with India. =DNA
