NEW DELHI (PTI): An Indian Air Force (IAF) unmanned aerial vehicle crashed today near Hashimara in West Bengal just a few hours after another air crash was reported in Bidar early in the day.

No injury to civilians or damaged to their property was reported in the crash, IAF sources said.

The unmanned aerial vehicle was on a training flight when it crashed about 30 km east of Hashimara at around five pm.

IAF has ordered a court of inquiry into the mishap.

This is the fist time the IAF has recorded unmanned aerial vehicle crash since it started operating them half a decade ago.

Earlier in the day, a Kiran Mk-II trainer aircraft crashed at Bidar air station in Karnataka killing its pilot.
