IAF Jet Shoots Down Pakistani Military Drone In Bikaner Sector Near India-Pak Border

A fighter jet of the Indian Air Force on Monday shot down a Pakistani military drone in Bikaner sector of the India-Pak border using an air-to-air missile, government sources said.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

The Pakistani drone was shot down by a Sukhoi-30 aircraft at around 11.30am, minutes after a ground-based radar station detected the flying machine, they said.

It was the second unsuccessful attempt by Pakistan to send a spy drone inside India in the last six days.

The radar station in the area detected the enemy drone following which one of the fighter jets deployed in the area shot it down, they said.

The downing of the jet came in the midst of heightened tension between India and Pakistan after IAF struck a terrorist training camp in Pakistan’s Balakot and subsequent retaliation by Islamabad.

A Pakistani drone was shot down by India on February 27 along the India-Pak border in Kutch in Gujarat. PTI
