New Delhi: A Pakistani helicopter crossed over to the Indian side of the international border in Arnai sector on Monday afternoon, thus violating the Indian air space.
Sources told Indian Express that the violation happened at around 1PM when a Pakistani helicopter strayed into the Indian air space.
“We saw it flying over the international border at one place and suddenly it disappeared only to resurface again at some other place,” a senior official said, attributing the air space violation to a pilot error as the international border is zigzagged between the two countries.
The official said that the Pakistani helicopter was flying very close to the international border.
As per the norms, both sides stay 4-5 kms away from the international border to avoid chances of violating the air space.
