Jodhpur: Indian Army on Saturday shot down a Pakistani military drone in Sri Ganganagar sector of the Indo-Pak border in Rajasthan.
The downing of the drone came in the midst of heightened tension between India and Pakistan after the Indian Air Force (IAF) struck a terrorist training camp in Balakot and subsequent retaliation by Islamabad.
It was the third unsuccessful attempt by Pakistan to send a spy drone inside India since the February 26 airstrike.
On March 4, a fighter jet of the IAF shot down a Pakistani drone in Bikaner sector of the Indo-Pak border using an air-to-air missile. The Pakistani drone was shot down by a Sukhoi-30 aircraft.
Another Pakistani drone was shot down by India on February 27 along Indo-Pak border in Kutch in Gujarat.
