On the night of April 30, Indian border forces shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that flew into Indian airspace from Pakistan. This is reported by the NDTV channel.
According to him, the UAV tried to get across the border into the Indian state of Punjab near the city of Amritsar, but was seen and destroyed. The wreckage of a Chinese-made DJI Matrice-300 drone was later discovered by Indian soldiers, a border guard spokesman told reporters.
According to the Indian side, the neighboring side often uses UAVs for reconnaissance purposes. In addition, as previously reported, members of extremist groups are using drones to transfer weapons and ammunition to India: UAVs were intercepted last year that tried to deliver AK-47 assault rifles, pistols and ammunition from the adjacent territory.
