Pak chopper violates Indian airspace

A Pakistani helicopter violated the Indian airspace along the Line of Control in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir. Jammu-based Army Public Relations Officer Lt Col Devender Anand said the Pakistani helicopter violated the airspace around 12:10 pm.

A white-colour chopper crossed into this side in Gulpur sector and hovered for sometime before turning back. The Pakistani chopper is seen hovering above the Indian airspace in the area for a while before returning even as sounds of gunshots were heard.

According to reports, Indian side opened fire at the chopper and soon it made a hasty retreat. This is not the first time that Pakistani choppers have entered airspace without prior notice.

Earlier in February this year, a similar incident happened in the Poonch sector itself. A Mi-17 helicopter of Pakistan entered within 300 km of the LoC. However, there was no opening of fire in that instant.

Pakistan’s latest escalation comes on a day when India exposed its neighbouring country at UNGA, where Sushma Swaraj and Eenam Gambhir explained how nothing much has changed even after regime change there.
