Pakistan on Saturday claimed that its air force jets shot down an unmanned Indian spy plane close to the border.
In a statement, the Pakistan Air Force said the unmanned aerial vehicle was brought down at 11 pm (PST) on Friday, and its wreckage fell close to the town of Raja Jang, south of Lahore, capital of Punjab province.
"The Indian aerial vehicle was on a reconnaissance and spying mission when it violated the Pakistan airspace close to Lahore," the statement said.
"The violation was monitored and the fighter aircraft of the PAF were immediately scrambled," it said.
"The PAF fighter jets intercepted the unmanned aircraft inside Pakistan's territory and shot it down," it added.
No comment was immediately available from the Indian armed forces.
The incident came as US Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage was in the region to try to defuse a military standoff between the two countries.
