Moreover, as per details in the media, CCPO Lahore Ghulam Muhammad Dogar took notice of the incident and summoned a report from SSP Saddar. He ordered SSP to submit a report after conducting the inquiry.

While an investigation is being conducted on the drone, speculations are rife on social media that the drone came from India since Lahore shares a border with India.

This is not the first time that a mysterious drone crashed in Pakistan. In 2011, a US spy plane crashed into Pakistani territory in Chaman, near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in Balochistan.

The drone was surveying the border when it crashed near the Pishin Scouts compound in Chaman, 300 meters inside Pakistani territory. The drone was not carrying any weapons systems and was probably for surveillance purposes. Pakistan’s law enforcement agencies took control of the wreckage.

In another incident, in 2015, the Pakistani military shot down an Indian spy drone along the Line of Control in the Bhimbher district of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, a claim denied by the Indian army despite ISPR’s releasing a photo of the crashed UAV.
