Jammu: Three Pakistani military helicopters
reportedly violated Indian airspace over the R S Pura sector
in Jammu on Tuesday.

Official sources said tonight the helicopters flew very
low over Abdulliyan post on the Indian side between 1 pm and
1.30 pm before they turned back towards the direction of
Sialkot, the sources said.

Preliminary reports only said three military aircraft
entered into Indian airspace.

Of the 29 instances in which Indian air space has been
violated in the past three years, Pakistani aircraft have been
responsible 23 times, Defence Minister A K Antony said in
Parliament recently.

Antony said between 2007 and 2010, Indian air space was
violated 29 times -- 23 times by Pakistan, once by Bangladesh,
thrice by China and twice by the US.
