Pakistan Army troops shot down another Indian spying quadcopter on Friday after it violated Pakistan’s airspace in Nekrun sector along the Line of Control, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.

According to ISPR, the quadcopter "intruded 700 metres into Pakistan's territory to conduct surveillance". Responding aggressively, Pakistan Army troops shot down the Indian quadcopter.

The Indian spying quadcopter came from Kanzalwan sector, said the ISPR in a tweet.

Two days ago, an Indian quadcopter was shot down by Pakistan Army in Rakhchikri sector along the Line of Control.

"Such unwarranted acts by Indian Army are clear violation of established norms, existing Air Agreement between two countries and reflect Indian army’s consistent disregard to Ceasefire Understanding of 2003," the ISPR said.

The Indian military uses quadcopters for aerial photography of Pakistani posts along the LoC as part of its intelligence-gathering operations and target selection before carrying out cross-LoC shelling.

On April 9, Pakistan Army also shot down another Indian quadcopter after it violated Pakistan's airspace in Sankh district.

Last year on March 16, the Pakistan Army shot down a "spying quadcopter" in the Rakhchikri sector along the LoC.
