Pakistan Says it Downed Another Indian Surveillance Drone

The Pakistani military announced on 6 March that its army troops shot down an Indian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that illegally entered Pakistani airspace across the line of control (LoC) in the disputed northern region of Kashmir.

Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the media wing of the Pakistani military, said in a statement that the “Indian spy drone” had “violated” the LoC in the Chirikot sector of Pakistan-administered Kashmir

“The drone has been taken over by Pakistan Army troops,” said ISPR, adding that the latest was the fourth such UAV shot down by Pakistan Army troops over the past 12 months.

The instances of ceasefire violations by the Indian forces recorded an alarming increase since the start of the month February following which the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) government has readied an evacuation plan for the residents near the LoC.
