Indian army denies yet again

NEW DELHI/ISLAMABAD, Jan 3(Agencies): The Pakistan army on Wednesday claimed to have shot down a second "Indian spy quadcopter" flying over the Pakistani side of the Line of Control.
However, Indian army has denied this claim yet again.
Major General Asif Ghafoor, the director general of the Inter-Services Public Relations – the Pakistan army 's media wing, said, “Pakistan army troops shot down another Indian spy quadcopter.” The quadcopter was destroyed in Satwal Sector, he added.
On Tuesday, Maj Gen Gafoor had tweeted along with a picture of the drone, claiming that Pakistan army troops had shot down an "Indian spy quadcopter" in the Bagh Sector of Pakistani side of the Line of Control, a claim strongly rejected by the Indian army. Maj Gen Gafoor had said that not even a quadcopter will be allowed to cross the LoC.
According to the Pakistani defence officials, "four intruding Indian drones were shot down by Pakistani forces last year.
The first of the claims was made on New Year's Day. This, on a day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi revealed what he told soldiers who crossed the LoC in September 2016 to carry out surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads.
“I gave clear orders that whether you get success or failure, don't think about that but come back before sunrise. Don't fall for the lure and prolong it [the operation],” he had told ANI.
Modi also spoke about relations between New Delhi and Islamabad. India never opposed dialogue with Pakistan, no matter who -- the UPA or the NDA -- was in power, he said.
