Foreign Office of Pakistan says:

Pakistan registers strong protest over unprovoked violation of its airspace by a ‘super-sonic flying object’ of Indian origin

The Charge d’Affaires (Cd’A) of the Republic of India in Islamabad was summoned to the Foreign Office today and conveyed Pakistan’s strong protest over the unprovoked violation of its airspace by an Indian origin ‘super-sonic flying object’ which entered into Pakistan from ‘Suratgarh’ India at 1843 hrs. (PST) on 9 March 2022 and fell to the ground near Mian Chunnu city in Pakistan at around 1850 hrs. the same day causing damage to civilian property.

The Indian diplomat was conveyed that the imprudent launch of the flying object not only caused damage to civilian property but also put at risk human lives on the ground. Besides, the flight path of the flying object endangered several domestic/international flights within Pakistani airspace and could have resulted in a serious aviation accident as well as civilian casualties.

The Indian Cd’A was told to convey to the Government of India Pakistan’s strong condemnation of this blatant violation of Pakistani airspace in contravention of the established international norms and Aviation safety protocols. Such irresponsible incidents were also reflective of India’s disregard for Air safety and callousness towards regional peace and stability.

Pakistan calls for a thorough and transparent investigation of the incident, the outcome of which must be shared with Pakistan. Moreover, the Government of India is cautioned to be mindful of the unpleasant consequences of such negligence and take effective measures to avoid the recurrence of such violations in the future.
