Mian Channu: By mistake India fired Missile at Pakistan?

India regrets supersonic missile fired on Pakistan territory

Ground Report | New Delhi: Mian Channu; Pakistan’s military has alleged that an Indian high-speed flying object has infiltrated its airspace. Major General Babar Iftikhar, Director General of the Inter-Services Public Relations Wing (ISPR) of the Pakistan Army, has stated that this object (Indian projectile in Pakistan) had entered the Pakistani border at a speed of 124 kilometres per hour.

The Pakistani military also claimed that this Indian flying object fell near the Indian Mian Channu missile in the Khanewal district, causing some damage to the surrounding areas. However, so far there has been no response from India to these claims. Earlier it was said that a private plane crashed in Mian Channu.

Major General Babar Iftikhar held a press conference in Rawalpindi on Thursday, saying: “On March 9, at 6:43 p.m. m., a high-speed flying object was detected within Indian Territory. From the initial course, it veered off and entered Pakistani territory and fell into Pakistani territory, causing some damage to civilian facilities, but no loss of life was reported.”

“High speed flying object” that fell in Mian Channu

According to Pakistan’s Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar

  • Indian “high speed flying object” fell in Mian Channu, Khanewal district of Pakistan on Wednesday night.
  • “It was a supersonic flying object, most probably a missile, but it was certainly unarmed,”
  • “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.”
  • “When it fell, it damaged civilian properties,” he said, adding no loss of life was reported.”
  • “PAF continuously monitored the complete flying path of the object, from its point of origin near Sirsa in India to its point of impact, near Mian Channu.
  • “Pakistan strongly protests this flagrant violation and cautions against recurrence of any such incident in the future,”

When asked for more details about the object, he said “we are not claiming anything at this time.” “As a responsible nation, we will wait for India to respond. We have given details of what we know at this time. But it is up to the Indians to explain what happened at Mian Channu.”

Explaining the incident, Deputy Marshal Tariq Zia said that at the time this shell was picked up, there were two active air routes and several commercial airlines in the area.

“If you look at the speed and height of the projectile, it was 40,000 feet high and the airlines were between 35,000 and 42,000 feet. This could have been very detrimental to passenger safety,” he said.
