Army fire shots at Pakistani chopper inside India

Hindustan Times

A Pakistani helicopter crossed 700 metres into Indian air space along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch sector on Sunday afternoon. According to reports from Pakistan, Pakistan-occupied Kashmir’s prime minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan was travelling in this chopper, reports Hindustan Times.

Pakistani news channel Aaj News said, the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz leader was flying near the Tarori area in PoK to participate in a condolence meeting. News channel Ary News said Raja Farooq Haider Khan’s helicopter later landed safely.

Defence spokesman Lt Col Devender Anand said a white-coloured Pakistani helicopter had violated Indian airspace around noon on Sunday.

It entered around 700m inside the Indian territory and flew over Krishna Ghati sector before returning, he said.

Air sentries at forward locations had engaged it with small arms, a move intended to warn the pilot about the intrusion and force the chopper to turn back.
