KASHMIR: India shot down Pakistani drone

India and Pakistan often accuse each other of violating their airspace by flying quadcopters along the line in Kashmir.

As of January this year, at least six Indian quadcopters have been shot down by the Pakistani military on a charge of airspace violation.

Indian troops destroyed a Pakistani spy quadcopter in the Keran area along the checkpoint, an Indian army official said on Saturday.

The aircraft flew about 70 meters on the Indian side at 8 a.m. local time.

In July this year, the Pakistani military claimed to have shot down an “Indian spy quadcopter” that flew 200 meters into Pakistani territory.

“This is the 10th Indian quadcopter to be shot down by Pakistani troops this year,” the Pakistani military said in a statement. India has denied similar allegations by the Pakistani military in the past.
