Indian forces fire at helicopter carrying AJK PM along LoC

September 30, 2018

LINE OF CONTROL: The Indian army troops fired shots at the helicopter of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider from a border post along the Line of Control (LoC) on Sunday, it is reported.

The helicopter was en route to Tarori near the LoC to condole the death of his brother Chaudhry Abdul Aziz.

Border forces stationed on both sides of the Line of Control regularly report to each other about aerial movement over the disputed border.

The aerial movement of prime minister of Azad Kashmir was already informed to the Indian security forces and the helicopter’s white colour clearly indicated that it was a civilian chopper.

The helicopter returned after the firing incident and landed safely without any damage.

On the other hand, the Indian Army issued a statement terming it a Pakistan Army helicopter.

A video has also been released by the Indian Army related to this incident.

The firing incident reflects the state of affairs of panic-stricken Indian army and the media that termed a white-coloured civilian chopper a Pakistan Army helicopter. INP
