Pakistani military  brought down an Indian spy aircraft on Saturday, following cross border firing, which led to the deaths of two girls aged four years and seven years.

A statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations said the “Indian Quad Copter was shot down by Pakistan troops at the Aagahi Post in Rak Chakri sector”.

It is said the aircraft had intruded 60 meters in the Pakistani side of the Line out of Control (LoC), which divides the two countries in the disputed Kashmir region.

The wreckage of the drone is now in the custody of the Pakistani forces.

Earlier the Pakistani army said two girls were killed and three persons injured in “unprovoked” firing by the Indian troops in Singhala Village of Khoi Ratta, along the LoC.

Nafees Zakaria, foreign office spokesperson, condemned firing by the Indian troops.

The two countries had declared ceasefire along the LoC and working boundary in 2003 but conflicts was renewed after militants attacked an army center in the Indian-controlled Kashmir in September.
