One surely must wonder how a nation fires a missile into another nation by accident but that is what India is claiming happened.
The missile was fired at around 7pm last Wednesday during a routine maintenance inspection. The missile landed in Pakistan without causing any casualties.
The incident was reported on Thursday by the Pakistan military.
Finally, India released a statement on the matter today with the Defence Minister Rajnath Singh saying “We attach the highest priority to the safety and security of our weapons systems”
“I would also like to state that a review of the standard operation procedures for operations, maintenance and inspections is being conducted.”
Pakistan is requesting an urgent review of the missile launch via a joint probe between the two nations and has urged the international community to help regional stability.
