The Indian Army has dismissed the claims of the Pakistan Army that it had shot down of Indian quadcopter in the Bagh sector along the Line of Control(LoC) on Wednesday.
Pakistan Army's Inter-Services Public Relations in-charge Major General Asif Ghafoor took to his official Twitter handle to share a picture of the toy quadcopter, stating that the Pakistan troops shot down the 'Indian Spy Quadcopter'. In the caption, he went on to say, "Not even a quadcopter will be allowed to cross LoC".
Speaking to ANI in the matter, the Indian Army source said, "They keep lying on these issues. No such incident has taken place."
Meanwhile, Pakistan on January 2, has violated ceasefire along the Line of Control(LoC) in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir. However, Indian troops are heavily retaliating.
Earlier on December 30, quadcopters were used to locate dead bodies of suspected Pakistani soldiers, who were gunned down by the Indian Army while foiling an attempt by Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) to carry out an attack across the Line of Control (LoC) in Naugam sector of Kashmir.
Quadcopters are small drones which are used by the Army to carry out surveillance and reconnaissance in operational areas.
These small drones are very useful for the forces as they can locate movement of terrorists and Pakistan Army regulars in a stealthy manner and also avoid the risk of exposing men to terrorists who may be hiding to ambush them.
The operation to foil the BAT action was started by the forces after the Indian troops had sensed suspicious movement near Indian Army post of Karal Kot along the Line of Control.
