Swift action by Indian Army halts Pakistani drone’s attempt to breach Poonch area

The Indian Army has effectively prevented a Pakistani drone from trying to infiltrate close to the Line of Control in Jammu & Kashmir. In a flash, soldiers opened fire on the drone, causing it to back off. In response to cross-border threats, security forces boost their vigilance.

In a recent development, Indian Army troops successfully stopped a Pakistani drone’s attempt to infiltrate the Poonch area of Jammu and Kashmir along the Line of Control (LoC). The event occurred late on Sunday night in the Mendhar neighbourhood of Nar Mankote, according to a report by the Press Trust of India (PTI).

According to officials, the drone was spotted moving by Indian forces when it momentarily entered Indian territory. To stop the invading drone from moving forward, the Indian Army personnel acted quickly and decisively, firing at least three rounds at it. The drone had to quickly escape back over the border into Pakistani territory as a result of the prompt response.

To make sure the area was secure after the encounter, Indian security officers started a search operation nearby. The incident demonstrates the Indian Army’s alertness and readiness to protect the country’s borders.

The Jammu and Kashmir police have announced a cash reward of Rs 3 lakh for any information leading to the interception of drones involved in smuggling drugs, weapons, or explosives from across the border. This development coincides with growing concerns over using drones for illegal activities. The offer reflects the government’s determination to stop illegal activity and uphold regional security.

The event also serves as a reminder of security services’ continuous difficulties in responding to cross-border threats, emphasising the need for ongoing surveillance and a proactive strategy to protect national security.
