Amid escalating tension between India and Pakistan, Director-General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Lt. Gen. Asim Saleem Bajwa has claimed that Pakistani troops have allegedly shot down an Indian quadcopter at Aagahi post in Rakhchakri sector.

Bajwa took to Twitter to say that the quadcopter had intruded 60 metres inside Pakistani territory and it fell near Agahi post after it was shot down.

He further said that Pakistani troops took the quadcopter into their territory.

This come a day after the Indian Navy strongly denied media reports in Pakistan that one of its submarines being detected and blocked from entering the latter nation's waters.

Several media organisations had earlier run 'footage' and photographs of what Islamabad said was a submarine trying to enter Pakistan waters.

The Pakistan Navy in a release asserted that the submarine was detected "south of the Pakistani coast".
