News Tech: NEW DELHI (AP) — Indian Air Force said on Tuesday the government has dismissed three officers for accidentally firing an unarmed missile into rival Pakistan in March.

The BrahMos cruise missile, fired from India on March 9, landed in Pakistan’s eastern Punjab province and damaged a wall in a residential area. No deaths or injuries were reported.

The air force in a statement said a formal inquiry found that “deviation from the Standard Operating Procedures by three officers led to the accidental firing of the missile” into Pakistan.

Pakistan’s military at the time said it tracked the missile from its launch and during its more than three-minute-long flight inside Islamabad’s airspace. Pakistani officials demanded an explanation from India, criticizing the launch as a “flagrant violation” that violated the country’s airspace.

India at the time said its airstrikes targeted Pakistan-based militants responsible for a suicide bombing that killed 40 Indian troops in Indian-controlled Kashmir. Pakistan later released the pilot.
