The spokesperson for the Pakistan Army on Thursday briefed the media about an Indian “high speed flying object”, which landed in Pakistan on Wednesday evening.

Major-General Babar Iftikhar, director general of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), told the media persons on Thursday evening: “It was a supersonic flying object, most probably a missile, but it was certainly unarmed.”

The Indian projectile had fallen in Mian Channu, Khanewal District, and earlier reports suggested a private aircraft had crashed in the area.

“On March 9, at 6:43pm, a high speed flying object was picked up inside the Indian territory by Air Defence Operations Centre of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF),” he said in his opening remarks.

“From its initial course, the object suddenly manoeuvred towards Pakistani territory and violated Pakistan’s air space, ultimately falling near Mian Channu at 6:50pm.”
