A day after the Balakot strike fueled Pakistan, India gave a befitting reply when it sent its aircraft inside the Indian border. During that two-way conflict, the Indian Army’s MI17 V5 helicopter fell into the Budgam area near Srinagar. Investigation into the incident revealed that the chopper was targeted through the Spider Air Defense Missile System from the Srinagar Air Base of the Indian Air Force.

The Air Force officers handling the system felt that it was not a helicopter, but a missile launched from the enemy. The helicopter took off 10 minutes earlier. In the video of his debris, burnt corpses and rising smoke were seen there. In fact, as soon as the missile hit, the chopper broke into two pieces and caught fire immediately.
