India shot down a fighter aircraft of the Pakistan Air Force after they targeted military installations on the Indian side early Wednesday morning. “Pakistan Air Force was detected and the Indian Air Force responded instantly. In that aerial battle, one Pakistan Air Force fighter aircraft was shot-down by a MiG 21 Bison of the Indian Air Force,” said MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar on Wednesday. In a very momentary press statement, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar, escorted by Air Vice Marshal RGK Kapoor, also said details are being ascertained about Pakistan’s claim of shot down two Indian military jets and seized two pilots in a major escalation between the nuclear powers over Kashmir.
“Against this Counter Terrorism Action, Pakistan has retaliated this morning by using its Air Force to target military connections on the Indian side. Due to our high state of readiness and attentiveness, Pakistan’s attempts were hindered successfully, “Kumar said. He said the Pakistan Air Force was identified and the Indian Air Force responded instantly. “In that aerial engagement, one Pakistan Air Force fighter aircraft was shot down by a MiG 21 Bison of the Indian Air Force. The Pakistani aircraft was seen by ground forces falling from the sky on the Pakistan side.
Pakistan had earlier claimed that it had shot-down two aircraft of the Indian Air Force and captured two pilots. Pakistan also released a video claiming that it is of an Indian fighter pilot. In the video shared by Pakistan, a person wearing a flight suit is heard saying that he is Wing Commander Abhinandan. He is blindfolded and gives out his service number. He then asks if he is in the custody of the Pakistan military, saying he has the right to know this. Later, he refuses to answer further questions. The video was released after a press conference held by spokesperson of the Pakistan armed forces Major General Asif Ghafoor. He claimed that two IAF pilots were arrested. One pilot is wounded and has been shifted to a hospital, while another one is unharmed, the spokesman added. He said one of the aircraft crashed in Pakistan occupied Kashmir while the other fell in Jammu and Kashmir.
