The Army shot down a quadcopter near the Line of Control (LoC) in the Keran Sector in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday, official sources said.
“A quadcopter (DJI Mavic 2 Pro model) was shot down this morning by the Indian Army on the LoC in Kupwara district,” an Army statement said.
It is not the first time a quadcopter has been shot along the borders in Jammu and Kashmir. In June, a Pakistani drone was shot down by the BSF in Hiranagar Sector on the International Border in Jammu. Arms and ammunition, including one M-4 US rifle, were seized. Last month, a consignment of weapons was dropped from a drone for terror outfits in the Rajouri Sector. Three terrorists were arrested by the security forces when they went to Rajouri to receive the consignment of weapons.
