India and Pakistan are two nations who don't need a reason to demote each other and are always looking to opportunities to lock horns, be it cricket or the battle ground. In the latest act, Pakistan army has claimed to have shot down a Indian "spy drone" which entered their airspace.

The supposed drone was shot near the Line of Control and wrecked to shreds as claimed by the Pakistan military's spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor who took the incident to Twitter while adding few images of a CJI Phantom drone lying on the ground to the post.

His tweet read, "Indian quadcopter spying across LOC in Rakhchikri sector shot down by Pak Army shooters."

The popular drones are available throughout the globe and the Pakistan troops reportedly keep taking the “threats” down by spotting and shooting these every once in a while. Most of the times, India has denied any claims of planting the caught drones in the country’s territory.

Last year, a quadcopter was shot down by the Pakistani troops at the Aagahi Post in Rakhchakri sector along the LoC which they claimed was planted by Indian authorities to spy on their secrets.

A similar incident took place in July 2015 when the Pakistan military claimed of shooting a “spy drone” near the LoC which was clicking aerial photographs, supposedly for India.

Dismissing all the baseless reports, an Indian Army spokesperson has then said, “Some reports of a drone crash in PoK are being referred to. No drone or UAV crash of the Indian Army has taken place.”
