Major General Asif Ghafoor, the director general of the Inter-Services Public Relations, which functions as the Pakistan Army's media wing, said,"Pakistan Army troops shot down another Indian spy quadcopter."

"The quadcopter was destroyed in the Satwal sector," he added.

On Tuesday, Maj Gen Ghafoor tweeted, along with a picture of the drone, and claimed that Pakistan Army troops had shot down an 'Indian spy quadcopter' in the Bagh Sector of Pakistani side of the Line of Control, a claim strongly rejected by the Indian Army.

He had said that not even a quadcopter will be allowed to cross the LoC.

According to Pakistani defence officials, "Four intruding Indian drones were shot down by Pakistani forces last year."
