Pak Army says shot down Indian spy drone in AJK


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Army said Friday evening they had shot down an ‘Indian’ quadcopter they suspected of ‘spying’ on the Rakhchikri sector of Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
From the pictures tweeted by the director general of Inter-Services Public Relations, the army’s media wing, it seemed that the quadcopter being used was of the commercially available variety of drones. The army said it had seized the wreckage, likely for analysis purposes.
“Indian quadcopter spying across LoC in Rakhchikri sector shot down by Pakistan Army shooters,” tweeted Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, Director General of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). The Rakhchikri sector falls in AJK’s Poonch and Haveli districts.
Immediately, there were no further details as to how deep the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) had intruded into this side of the LoC.
