India shoots down Pakistani drone

The incident came on Monday, when an Indian Sukhoi-30 warplane downed the pilotless aircraft near the city of Bikaner in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan, the reports said, citing unnamed sources. The Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency said the Air Force had also shot down another intruding Pakistani drone late last month. On February 14, Indian paramilitary forces on the India-controlled side of Kashmir were hit by a deadly bomb attack orchestrated by Pakistan-based militants. Tensions between the historical archrivals reached a peak later, when India said it had conducted “preemptive” airstrikes against what it described was a militant training camp in the town of Balakot in western Pakistan. The countries’ Air Forces then engaged in a dogfight that brought down an Indian warplane. Islamabad returned the aircraft’s captured pilot to India on Friday in, what Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan had called, “a peace gesture." During the escalation, the two militaries also exchanged fire over the Line of Control that divides Kashmir between the countries. The firefight has killed several people on both sides. On Saturday, Pakistan said it had buried a soldier “with full military honor for defending the motherland."
