Pakistan also claims it has arrested two Indian pilots

A day after New Delhi claimed its Air Force had struck a terror camp on Pakistani territory, reports that both India and Pakistan have shot down each others’ fighter jets have started to emerge.

Quoting Indian officials, PTI news agency reported that Pakistani jets have violated the Line of Control (LoC) and dropped bombs in Jammu and Kashmir. 

Officials also told NDTV that all Indian pilots are accounted for, refuting Pakistani claims that it had arrested one pilot.

Earlier in the day, Pakistan claimed its jets had struck across the LoC from “Pakistani airspace,” and that it had shot down two Indian jets, reported Scroll.in.    

Meanwhile, ANI reported that India had shot down a Pakistani jet. India has yet to provide an official comment on this.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged of a military aircraft crashing in Budgam, Kashmir, although initial accounts suggested this was due to technical reasons. Indian police at the site have confirmed they have found two bodies amid the debris, though more details regarding the incident have yet to be revealed.

Much of Northern India is on high alert, and civilian air traffic in the area has been completely halted.
