The latest LoC violation comes as tensions between India and Pakistan escalated following the Indian aggression in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack.
The Indian Air Force (IAF) violated Line of Control (LoC) on February 26 following which Pakistan Air Force (PAF) immediately scrambled and Indian aircraft went back.
On February 27, the PAF shot down Indian two aircrafts inside Pakistani airspace and arrested an Indian pilot. The military’s media wing later released a video of the pilot, who introduced himself as Wing Commander Abhinandan bearing service number 27981.
This is worth mentioning here that Pakistan Army troops shot down an Indian spy Quadcopter in Azad Kashmir’s Bagh Sector along Line of Control (LoC) On January 2.
