RAWALPINDI: The Pakistan Air Force on Thursday shot down an Indian projectile that entered Pakistani airspace and violated international conventions.

Addressing a press conference in Rawalpindi, the Director-General of the Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR) Major Gen Babar Iftikhar said that Pakistan strongly condemned the Indian violation of its airspace.

He said that the projectile, which was shot down near Mian Channu in Khanewal district, travelled 124kms inside Pakistan from India.

"We detected the object on time and took necessary action as per the standard operating procedures (SOPs)," he said, adding that no casualties took place because of the incident.

"Some material damage was caused to a building because of the object and a crater was formed," he said.

Looks like a failed Brahmos missile test.
He said they are still investigating the nature of the projectile but one thing is confirmed the projectile was not armed. However, he said that the major possibility is that this projectile was a missile.

A drone cannot be supersonic, yes it was unarmed.

INDIAN ROGUE MISSILE CRASHES IN PAKISTAN

Director General Inter Services Public Relations, Pakistan Armed Forces: “At 9th of March 2022, at 1843 Hours (6:43 PM), a high speed flying object was picked up inside Indian territory, by Air Defence Operations Centre of the Pakistan Air Force. From its initial course, the object suddenly manoeuvred towards Pakistani territory, and ultimately fell near Mian Channu at 1850 hours (6:50 PM), damaging some civilian property when it fell. Thankfully, no loss or injury to human life was caused. The Pakistan Air Force continuously monitored the complete flight path of the flying object, from it’s point of origin, near Sirsa in India, to point of impact in Mian Channu. The Pakistan Air Force initiated requisite tactical actions in accordance with the SOPs. It is necessary to mention that this rogue object endangered many international and domestic passenger flights both in Indian and Pakistani airspace.”
The DG ISPR further stated that “whatever caused this incident to happen, is for the Indians to explain.”

Director General Public Relations Pakistan Air Force, Air Vice Marshal Tariq Zia:
“During our routine surveillance, yesterday on the 9th of March, at 1843 hours we picked up a high speed object, close to Sirsa (India), picked up 104 kilometres from the International Border at around 40,000 feet, travelling at Mach 2.5 to ultimately Mach 3. The initial course of this projectile was on southwesterly heading, and it appeared to initially go towards the Mahajin field firing ranges which are in southwest of suratgarh, however once it had travelled around 70-80 kilometres on this heading, it took a right track change, While maintaining the same altitude and speeds, and started to head northwest towards Pakistani airspace. Pakistan Air Force’s air defence systems had a solid and continuous tracking of this projectile, right from its first pickup till it faded out.”

If you look at the above statement it seems it was a failed mijjile test, the projectile went haywire
