ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Army has released photos and videos of apparently an Indian drone violating the Line of Control (LoC) before it was shot down by the Pakistani troops in Bhimber area on July 15.

According to a press release issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Monday, the spy drone, used for photography, was downed near the LoC after it intruded Pakistani territory.

After analysis, it has been proven that the unmanned plane was sent for spying purposes, said ISPR.

Indian troops’ presence is clearly visible in the photos, said the media wing of Pakistan Army, adding that an Indian flag hoisted at one of the country’s checkposts is also evidently detectable in the footage and photos.

The movement of Indian troops indicate aggressive intentions of the country, said the press release. A company headquarters of the Indian Army also clearly discernible in the photos.

The Pakistan Army has already lodged a protest with United Nations (UN) observers over recent ceasefire violations by Indian troops.

The ISPR had called for the UN observers to probe the Indian ceasefire violations and provocation. It added that the Indian army had targeted civilian areas with heavy machine guns and mortar shells.

Four Pakistani civilians were martyred and five injured to unprovoked Indian firing on the Working Boundary and Line of Control earlier this month.

Pakistan’s Foreign Office had also summoned Indian High Commissioner Dr T C A Raghavan and registered a strong protest with him over violation of Pakistani airspace by the Indian drone and the ceasefire violations.
