A Pakistan aircraft was spotted along LoC in Poonch leading to sounding of an alert.The army has taken up the matter with the Air Force to ascertain possibility of an airspace violation.
Local newspaper Greater Kashmir quoting unnamed officials reported that in the morning hours, a trail of smoke was seen above the Line of Control in Poonch sector that started from Shahpur area and ended at Saujiyan.
“It is being suspected that an airplane flew over Line of Control in the region and went around 3-5 kilometers in the zone,” said a source.
As there was no development of any airplane from Indian side in the region today morning, it becomes apparent that the presumed airplane was from Pakistani side as a path of smoke likewise moved towards Pakistan in the forward Kahota region of Pakistan-controlled Kashmir,” added the source.
An official while terming the issue as a cause of concern said that matter has been taken up by the army with the Air Force, which is the nodal authority to confirm any air space violation, GK reported.
“Although confirmation from the Air force is awaited but this clearly seems a case of movement of Pak aircraft but whether it entered inside Indian territory or moved only above the buffer zone is a matter of investigation,” he said.
