The Indian drone had crossed 60 meters over the Line of Control (LoC) into Pakistan when it was shot down and captured by Pakistani troops, Pakistan's army spokesman Lieutenant General Asim Bajwa said on Saturday.

In Rajouri, the police and Army officials said that sepoy Kala Singh of the Army's 8 Sikh Li, a BSF jawan Laltu Singh ( of 126 Battalion) and 55-year-old resident Shanti Devi were injured in the Pakistani shelling in Sunderbani and Noushehra sectors of the LoC on Saturday. A Foreign Office statement read, "Pakistan condemns the martyrdom of children at Khuiratta sector".

He said the Indian quadcopter had violated Pakistani airspace and came 60 metres inside the territory after which it was targeted by Pakistani troops, Geo News reported.

The latest shootout comes a day after Pakistan's navy claimed it had detected and stopped Indian submarines from entering the country's territorial waters in the Arabian sea.

The Pakistan Army responded in the same coin to the unprovoked firing and shelling from across the LoC.

Relations between Pakistan and India have been strained for several months, while cross-frontier shelling has intensified leading to deaths of civilians and soldiers stationed along the disputed frontier.

Earlier in the day, the Pakistani military said Pakistani and Indian border troops had exchanged fire across the LoC in two other sectors on Saturday.

There have since been repeated outbreaks of cross-border firing, with both sides reporting deaths and injuries including of civilians.
