PKONWEB Report (Islamabad) — Pakistan Army shot down another Indian spy drone on Wednesday, said Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR).
DG of the military’s media wing Major General Asif Ghafoor tweeted, “Pakistan Army troops shot down another Indian spy quadcopter today in Satwal Sector on the Line of Control” that divides the Pakistani and Indian-controlled portions of disputed Kashmir.
Pakistani troops on Tuesday also shot down Indian Spy Quadcopter in Bagh Sector along the LoC.
“Not even a quadcopter will be allowed to cross LOC Inshallah,” tweeted Maj. Gen. Ghafoor.
According to experts, the Indian military uses quadcopter for aerial photography of Pakistani posts along the LoC as part of its intelligence-gathering operations and target selection before carrying out cross-LoC shelling.
There has been no comment from New Delhi as it enters election year amid reports Modi wave is ebbing.
Kashmir is split between Pakistan and India, both of which claim the territory in its entirety and have fought two wars over it since their independence from British rule in 1947.
Experts say 2018 was the most deadly year in a decade that has left Indian-controlled Kashmir facing a grim future with militant groups and Modi-led Indian government digging in for an even fiercer battle in 2019.
Kashmir politicians and independent Indian experts say the presence of 500,000 troops in the former Himalayan kingdom and an election in India in May 2019 leaves little hope for an end to the bloodshed.
