Islamabad- The Pakistan Army on Saturday claimed to have shot down an “Indian spying quadcopter” allegedly intruding across the Line of Control (LoC).
Military spokesman Major General Babar Iftikhar said that the mini copter violated the country’s airspace in Khanjar sector of the LoC.
“The quadcopter had intruded 500 metres on Pakistan’s side of the LoC, he said in a statement.
The spokesman claimed that it was the eighth Indian quadcopter to be shot down by the Pakistan Army troops this year.
Last month, two such quadcopters were downed, the first on May 27 and the second on May 29 after they allegedly intruded deep inside the Pakistani territory, he said.
India has dismissed previous such claims by the Pakistan Army.
