Pakistani Army claimed that it has gunned downed an Indian spy drone. The incident happened in Bhimber in the Pak-occupied-Kashmir on Wednesday.

The incident, surprisingly, happened on the very day Pakistani Rangers fired indiscriminately along the LoC killing a woman and injuring three others in Akhnoor sector in Jammu district.


Pakistan claims that the drone, used for aerial photography, had “violated Pak airspace and territorial integrity”.

According to TOI, Pakistan has summoned the Indian envoy in Islamabad, T.C.A. Raghavan, to Foreign Office over the drone incident.

Both the Indian Army and the Air Force denied the claims stating that no Indian drone of the forces had crashed anywhere.

The TOI reports that a leading defence magazine believes that the Pakistani military photo of drone is of a Chinese-made DJI Phantom 3, which has a very limited range of just 2 kms.

Experts say that the drone is one of the commercially available non-military equipment used for aerial filmmaking.




The incident comes mere days after Indian PM Narendra Modi met his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Russia.
