Drone spotted over Indian High Commission in Islamabad last week

A drone was spotted over the Indian High Commission compound in Islamabad last week. India has registered its strong protest with Pakistan over the security breach. It triggered a huge security scare in the mission, people familiar with the development said on Friday. The Indian mission has already taken up the issue strongly with the Pakistani authorities.

This sighting at the Indian facility in Islamabad comes amid heightened tensions over a drone attack on an air force base in Jammu and Kashmir last week.

"A drone was spotted over the premises of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad on June 26. This has been taken up officially with Pakistan. We expect Pakistan to investigate the incident and prevent recurrence of such breach of security", the Ministry of External Affairs said.
