A Pakistani Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) was on Tuesday shot down near to the International Border in Kutch region of Gujarat, police sources said. This comes quite close to Indian Air Force striking a Jaish dread camp in Balakot.

Flotsam and jetsam of the UAV were seen near Nanghatad town in Abdasa taluka of Kutch, they said.
On hearing a loud sound around 6 am, locals went to the spot and found the flotsam and jetsam of the UAV, the sources said.
Inquired as to whether a Pakistani UAV had been shot somewhere near the Indian military, a police official, on condition of anonymity, stated,
“Such an incident has happened, we are investigating the matter.” The official, however, refused to extend further.
Earlier, battle planes of Indian Air Force bombed Jaish terror camp over the Line of Control on the Pakistani side, 12 days after Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terror group completed an assault on a CRPF guard in Pulwama in Kashmir.
The IAF dropped 1,000-pound bombs in a thickly-forested ridge that has dispensed with a major number of terrorists in Balakot, the biggest camp of the terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed.
The strikes were done based on credible intelligence and intended to focus on the Jaish camp with no nonmilitary personnel losses, Gokhale declared hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a best security meet to review the cross-fringe strike.
