Pakistani Military Drone Shot Down by IAF Sukhoi-30 Jet Near Indo-Pak Border

The second foiled attempt by Pakistan to send a spy drone inside India in the last six days

New Delhi March 4: A fighter jet of the Indian Air Force on Monday shot down a Pakistani military drone in Bikaner sector of the Indo-Pak border using an air-to-air missile, according to government sources.
A Sukhoi-30 aircraft shot down the Pakistani drone at around 11:30 AM, minutes after it was detected by a ground-based radar station.

This was the second unsuccessful attempt by Pakistan to send a spy drone inside India in the last six days

The radar station in the area detected the enemy drone following which one of the fighter jets deployed in the area shot it down, they said.

The incident has come in the midst of heightened tension between India and Pakistan after the IAF struck a terrorist training camp in Pakistan’s Balakot and subsequent retaliation by Islamabad.

Earlier another Pakistani drone had been shot down by India on February 27 along Indo-Pak border in Kutch in Gujarat.
