Leader of the Pakistan-administered Kashmir region has accused Indian troops of shooting at his helicopter while it was flying close to the highly militarised Line of Control (LoC), the de facto border dividing the region.
PM AJK Raja Farooq Haider, in reaction to the incident, said that the Indian forces are incompetent and coward to fire on a civil helicopter.
Muslim-majority Kashmir is divided between nuclear-armed neighbors, who both claim the mountainous region in full and have fought two of their three wars over it since their separation in 1947.
Poonch (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Sept 30 (ANI): Pakistan claims that the chopper, which violated the Indian airspace on Sunday, had the Prime Minister of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) Raja Farooq Haider Khan on board.
The prime minister was travelling with two ministers and his personal staff officer in the helicopter that narrowly escaped the attack near Abbaspur village.
Though the colour and the shape of the copter made its civilian nature easily discernible but Indian soldiers probably mistook it for a military craft and sprang into action, that too while it was flying in Pakistani airspace.
According to reports, the chopper hovered over the Indian airspace in Gulpur sector for sometime before turning back.
