India downs Pak drone with weapons

A drone carrying weapons in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district was shot down by the Indian Border Security Forces on Saturday.

It was yet another attempt by Pakistani forces to drop weapons and ammunition for terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.

A US made M-4 rifle, two magazines, 60 rounds of ammunition and seven grenades have been found after shooting down the US made Hexa Copter Drone.

There were no immediate comment from Pakistan.

The incident comes as Indian authorities stepped up operations against militants in Kashmir valley More than 100 alleged militants have been killed this year, officials said.  

Indian-administered Kashmir has been in turmoil since last August when New Delhi revoked its semi-autonomous status.

Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan since the two became independent and angrily split in 1947. Both claim the whole region which has been the cause of two wars between the neighbours.
