JAMMU, Nov 30: A fighter aircraft of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF), violated the airspace on the border and flew very close to the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district, inciting India.
"The jet violated international treaty by flying close to the Line of Control in the Poonch sector. Because fighter jets from any country are not allowed to fly within the 10 km border of the border," a defence spokesman said, according to a news agency.
The spokesperson said that a jet stream was clearly visible in the sky close to the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch. Recently some drones were spotted near the Line of Control (LoC).
However, soon after the news was received, an alert was issued to the army deployed in border security. The military is trying to figure out what kind of jet it was actually. Along with this, alerts have also been issued to the villages adjacent to the border.
"Yes, Pak 'fighter jet' was seen and a chain of smoke was noticed in the poonch sector which seemed to be of a Pakistani jet," said an official.
Official sources said 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 Sawjian.
“It is being suspected that an aircraft flew over Line of Control in the area and travelled around 3-5 kilometres area,” said a source.
“As there was no movement of any aircraft from Indian side in the area today morning, it becomes evident that the suspected aircraft was from Pakistani side as a trail of smoke also moved towards Pakistan in the forward Kahuta area of Pakistan-administered 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.
“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.
