Pakistan claimed to have arrested an Indian pilot after shooting down two IAF aircrafts. Soon after Pakistani jets violated Indian airspace and dropped bombs, India shot down a Pakistani F-16 jet that entered Lam Valley Nowshera sector on Wednesday morning.
Pakistan Major General Asif Ghafoor said that the PAF shot down two Indian aircrafts, which had entered the Pakistani airspace. He tweeted. “One Indian pilot arrested by troops on ground while two in the area.”
However, as per senior officials in the Indian military establishment, Indian aircrafts crashed due to a technical snag and that’s how two pilots were killed.
