BrahMos Missile: The Indian Defense Ministry has accepted that on March 9, a missile from India had fallen in Pakistan. The Defense Ministry said in a statement issued on Friday evening – The missile was launched due to a technical fault during routine maintenance.
Due to one mistake in India, a major accident was avoided in Pakistan. The Indian Defense Ministry has accepted that on March 9, a missile from India had fallen in Pakistan. The Defense Ministry said in a statement issued on Friday evening – this incident happened due to 'accidental firing'. The missile was launched due to a technical snag during routine maintenance.
The government has issued orders of the High-Level Court of Inquiry. The ministry said, sorry about the incident, but the good thing is that there was no loss of life due to this accidental firing.
Pakistan Army's media wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) DG Major General Babar Iftikhar had told in a press conference on Thursday evening that at 6:43 pm on March 9, our Air Defense Operations Center hit the Indian side at a very high speed.
They Saw the object coming inside Pakistan. It violated Pakistani airspace and fell near the Mian Channu area at 6:50 pm. This flying object was probably a supersonic missile, but certainly not armed.
Claimed by releasing the map, a missile fired from here
The Pakistan Army released the projectile map and claimed that the missile falling in Pakistan was fired from Sirsa in Haryana. The missile covered a distance of 261 km in 7 minutes from the projection site to the Mian Channu area of Pakistan.
After covering a distance of 124 km from the border, the missile fell inside Pakistan, which damaged some houses. Babar Iftikhar, who was held in Islamabad, said, it is very important to point out that the Indian missile jeopardized many international and domestic passenger flights in the airspace of India and Pakistan at that time. Pakistan has sought an answer from India in this regard.
The missile fired was BrahMos
Although the Indian Defense Ministry did not clarify who was the missile that fell into Pakistan, sources in the Defense and Security Establishment said it was the supersonic cruise missile BrahMos.
However, Pakistan's claim that the missile fired from Sirsa is not correct. There is no BrahMos based in Sirsa. This missile system is operated from special trucks and can be moved from one place to another. Such missile tests usually take place on the east coast and from the Andaman and Nicobar Command.
Imran Khan's government engulfed in a political storm
As Khan said that till the statement does not come from India, we have not reached any conclusion yet. Imran Khan also stressed that Pakistan strongly opposes the apparent violation of its airspace.
The Pakistan Army Spokesperson said that whatever the reason for this incident, it is up to the Indians to explain it. However, the claim made by the Pakistani Army has come at a time when the Imran Khan government in Pakistan is engulfed in a political storm. He is forcibly apprehending the opposition MPs to save the government.
