The missile was discharged due to a technical error, India stated in a statement.

After Pakistan warned that the event could have “unpleasant consequences,” India said it mistakenly fired a missile into Pakistan this week owing to a “technical fault” during routine maintenance. The government has “taken a serious stance and authorized a high-level Court of Enquiry” investigate the incident, according to the ministry.

The announcement came just hours after Islamabad’s foreign ministry condemned a “unprovoked violation of its airspace by a’super-sonic flying object’ of Indian origin.”

“On 9 March 2022, in the course of a routine maintenance, a technical malfunction led to the accidental firing of a missile,” the Indian ministry of defence said in a statement on Friday.

At around 6:50 p.m., the object fell on the ground near Mian Chunnu city in Pakistan’s Punjab province, causing damage to civilian property. “The Indian diplomat was informed that the rash launch of the flying object not only caused damage to civilian property but also put human lives on the ground in jeopardy,” the Foreign Office (FO) stated.

According to the statement, India’s charge d’affaires in Islamabad had been summoned to the foreign office for a “strong complaint.” It said that India’s “rash launch” had caused property damage on the ground and put human lives and planes in Pakistani airspace at jeopardy, accusing India of “callousness toward regional peace and stability.”

Military experts have previously warned of the dangers of accidents or miscalculations by the neighbors, who have fought three wars and engaged in numerous military clashes, most recently in 2019 when their air forces clashed. Both countries possess nuclear weapons.

In a late-evening news conference on Thursday, Pakistani military spokesman Major-General Babar Iftikhar said that a “high-speed flying object” fell near the eastern city of Mian Channu and originated in the northern Indian city of Sirsa, in Haryana state near New Delhi.

According to a Pakistan air force official, the object flew 124 kilometers (77 miles) in Pakistani airspace before crashing at an altitude of 12,200 meters (40,000 feet).
