'They keep lying': India dismisses Pakistan's claim of shooting down its army quadcopter in Bagh sector along LoC

New Delhi: The Indian Army has dismissed the claims of the Pakistan Army that it had shot down an Indian quadcopter in the Bagh sector along the Line of Control. "They keep lying on these issues. No such incident has taken place," Army sources said in Delhi.

The claim was made by Pakistan Army's Inter Services Public Relations in-charge Major General Asif Ghafoor from his official Twitter handle.

Interestingly, the Pakistan side stressed that it did not allow even a quadcopter to cross over the LoC the same day Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for the first time, discussed in detail the surgical strikes of September 2016, when Indian troops launched multiple attacks on militant launch pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Pakistan has been denying that the surgical strikes ever took place, but it is believed that around 50 militants along with the Pakistan Army's regular troops were killed in these operations.
