ISLAMABAD: The

Pakistan

Army on Sunday claimed to have shot down an "Indian spying quadcopter" for allegedly violating the airspace along the Line of Control.
According to a statement issued by the army, the incident took place in Hot Spring sector of the LoC.
It said that the "Indian spying quadcopter" had intruded 850 metres on Pakistan's side of the LoC when it was brought down.
"This is 9th Indian quadcopter shot down by Pakistan Army troops this year,” the statement claimed.
India has dismissed previous such claims by the Pakistan Army.
The ties between the two nations strained following the

Balakot

strike when the

Indian Air Force

jets bombed a Jaish-e-Mohammed training camp in Pakistan on February 26 last year to avenge the killing of 40

Central Reserve Police Force

personnel in the

Pulwama

terror attack on February 14. Pakistan retaliated on February 27 by attempting to target Indian military installations.
The ties further nose-dived after New Delhi abrogated

Article 370

that granted special status to Jammu and

Kashmir

in August last year.
