Earlier this month, another quadcopter had intruded into Pakistani territory and was shot down in Khanjar Sector along the LoC. It had crossed 500 metres on Pakistan’s side of the border.
In May, two quadcopters were shot down within the same week.
On May 29, the army had downed a drone that violated Pakistani airspace from Kanzalwan Sector along the LoC.
Two days prior, an Indian surveillance drone that had crossed over the LoC into the Rakh Chakri sector was shot down by the army.
