Pakistani Chopper Violates Indian Airspace Along LoC, Beats Retreat After Army Fire

New Delhi: A Pakistani helicopter crossed the Line of Control and entered the Indian airspace in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday afternoon, the Indian Army said.

According to sources, the chopper crossed the LoC at 12:13pm, following which the Indian Army fired at it using small weapons.
PTI quoted official sources as saying that the white-coloured chopper hovered for some time before turning back.
The airspace violation comes amid tensions between India and Pakistan at the border and at the United Nations, where External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj accused Islamabad of “glorifying terrorists”.
