India has lodged a strong protest with Pakistan after a drone was seen hovering over its High Commission in Islamabad just a day before the twin-drone attack on the Indian Air Force airbase in Jammu. 

As per the sources in the government establishment, the drone was seen in the Indian High Commission’s residential area on June 26. 

Experts said that such a drone flight over a no-fly zone could not be carried out without the connivance of local security establishments.

India has been raising the issue of the threat posed by weaponized drones at several global forums, including the United Nations.
