China today said an Indian drone had recently "intruded" into its airspace and crashed in the Sikkim sector, prompting it to lodge a diplomatic protest to India over the violation of China's territorial sovereignty.
The newly-created Western Theater Command is the largest of the five military divisions in China. The Indian drone "intruded" into China's airspace and crashed recently, and China's border troops have conducted identification and verification over the vehicle, said Zhang Shuili, deputy head of the combat bureau of the Western Theatre Command's joint staff department.
"An Indian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) which was on a regular training mission inside the Indian territory lost contact with the ground control due to some technical problem and crossed over the LAC in the Sikkim Sector", a Ministry of Defence statement said, according to The Indian Express.
Sources said the drone was an Israeli Heron UAV, and it crashed on the Chinese side of the border across north Sikkim.
The claims do not include details about the timing or specific location of the incident.
