Army fires at Pakistani drone along LoC in Rajouri

Troops stationed along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir took action in response to the presence of a Pakistani drone and suspected individuals in separate incidents, officials reported on April 1.

According to reports, a Pakistani quadcopter was detected in a forward area in Sunderbani, prompting the troops to fire at least four rounds to deter its entry into Indian territory. Despite the firing, the drone retreated to the Pakistani side of the LoC.

Simultaneously, suspicious movement of individuals suspected to be terrorists was observed in the Keri sector during the night between Sunday and Monday. Troops responded by firing several rounds, causing the suspected infiltrators to flee towards Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

In response to the incidents, a thorough search operation was initiated to ensure the absence of any drone-dropped materials or suspicious items left behind by the fleeing individuals. The operation remained ongoing at the time of the latest reports.
