A Pakistani drone with a payload was shot down in the Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday shortly after it crossed into the Indian side from across the International Border, police said.
A search party of police picked up the movement of a drone from the border in Talli Hariya Chak area under the Rajbagh police station’s jurisdiction in the morning and fired at it, a police spokesperson said.
He said the drone was brought down after being hit by the ground fire.
”It has a payload attached with it and it is being screened by the bomb disposal squad,” the spokesperson said.
