The distance where the drone was shot down was approximately 250 metres on the Indian side from the International Border with Pakistan.
Speaking to NDTV sources said, This was another attempt by Pakistani forces to drop weapons for terrorists in the Union Territory. This delivery was meant for a terrorist, Ali Bhai. The payload was carrying his name.”
Sources added, “The drone is 8-feet wide from blade-to-blade and seems to have been controlled by a Pakistani picket opposite Panesar post of the BSF formation in Kathua sector. These shameless acts by Pakistani agencies are aimed at arming Jaish terrorists active in Kashmir to carry out terrorist acts and disruption of peace and order. Similar attempts to smuggle weapons have been foiled earlier in other areas bordering Pakistan, especially in Kupwara, Rajouri and Jammu sectors. ”
The drone was seen hovering in the skies by a BSF patrol at 5.10 am. They fired nine rounds at the drone that was flying 250 metres inside Indian territory.
