The incident took place between 9.45 am to 10 am. The helicopter entered Pallandri area of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).
There was, however, no firing or hostile action by any side, they added.
According to laid down norms by both the sides, rotary wing aircraft should not come within one kilometre of the LoC and fixed-wing aircraft should not be within 10 km of it, reported PTI.
The helicopter later went back, the sources said, adding although it was not a violation of airspace, it was a breach of an understanding between the two sides.
The sources indicated that the matter will be taken up with the Pakistani side.
