The Pakistan Army on Saturday claimed to have shot down an Indian drone which it alleged had “intruded” into Pakistani territory across the heavily-guarded LoC. “Indian quadcopter has been shot down by Pakistani troops at 1645 (hrs), fell in Pak territory & taken over by Pak troops,” army spokesman Lt Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa tweeted.

Watch what else is making news:

He claimed the drone had “intruded 60 metres into the Pakistan side of LoC” and its debris “fell near Agahi Post in Rakhchakri Sector”.

There have been a whopping 286 incidents of firing and shelling along the LoC and International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir by Pakistani troops that have resulted in the death of 26 people, including 14 security personnel, since the surgical strike on terrorist launch pads in PoK on September 29 after the Uri terror attack.

    Photos of submarine detection and pics of downing drone viral on net. Why there is no clarification from DMO or DNO as it was done for surgical strikes. If some mistake is there, one should admit it. Denial of fact creates doubts and lost of creadibility

        We think our army and RAW are better than pakostani army. We should not forget that our army has failed to get POK back. And if we search top intelgence agencies in the world we will ISI is one of the best in the world and iur TAW is much behind. But what can i say we indains live in dreams

              He said that 13 of our soldiers were killed but we did not give any statement regarding any vengeance against stan. He further said that violation of ceasefire if done by stani soldiers, the statement of General Raheel Sharif is unbearable and is synonymous to war.

                        The other day they claimed to have stopped an Indian submarine near their territorial waters, now they claim to have shot down a drone ! Next they will claim to have shot down Indian mosquito's or flies carrying miniature cameras and deadly viruses !!! Porki Army has to keep their own morale along with the public for their survival and indispensability !

Live long Pak Army.

                                        This is in response to stan sending across a flock of pigeons and some balloons. India was checking to see if there are more "spy" pigeons flying across LoC LOL
