Tech issue causes missile to enter Pakistani airspace, India claims

An Indian missile “accidentally” crossed Pakistani airspace, the Indian Ministry of Defense said.

According to NDTV, the missile landed on March 9 near Mian Channu, Khanewal district, Pakistan, due to a “technical fault.”

According to the ministry, on March 9, 2022, a missile was unintentionally released owing to a technical failure during routine maintenance and landed in Pakistan.

The government has launched a high-level probe, according to the statement. The Indian government called the situation “tragic” but said it was “satisfying” that no one was hurt.

Major General Babar Iftikhar, Director General of Pakistan Army Public Relations (ISPR), revealed yesterday that they infiltrated Pakistani territory from India at 6:33 a.m. An occurrence violated airspace.

Mr. Iftikhar said that at a briefing on the violation of Indian airspace, an Air Force officer stated that the Pakistan Air Force had extensively tracked the suspicious “object” for 3 minutes and a few seconds.
