  • A Pakistani-made Shaheen-III missile that is capable of carrying nuclear warheads is on display during a military parade in Islamabad Pakistan Friday

The PM of Pakistan Imran Khan said in his speech that the pilot is with them.

The images were described by India as a "vulgar display of an injured personnel".

He said Pakistan would cooperate with India in an investigation concerning the suicide auto bombing by Pakistan-based militants in Indian-controlled Kashmir that killed at least 40 Indian paramilitary police on February 14. "We do not wish to escalate, but are fully prepared if forced into that paradigm", said its Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The country's foreign ministry said in a statement on Wednesday morning that it had struck a "non-military target" across the ceasefire line in Kashmir without entering Indian airspace to demonstrate its "right, will and capability for self defence".

Mark Martin, founder and chief executive at Martin Consulting India, said about 800 flights a day use the India-Pakistan air corridor, making it "very critical".

Pakistani troops on the ground captured an Indian pilot, he later said, after earlier saying it captured two. Pakistan later released a video of one of the detained pilots. "That's all I'm supposed to tell you".

Pakistan's army spokesman Asif Ghafoor tweeted a photo of the airman and said he was "being treated as per norms of military ethics".

What were the air strikes about?

According to details, the PAF shot down two Indian airplanes inside Pakistani airspace, and arresting the two offending pilots.

Assuring people that all precautions were being taken, Cyberabad Commissioner V C Sajjanar said in a message, "We have alerted all our officers to intensify patrolling, conduct surprise checks, intensify anti sabotage checks etc".

Pakistan responded by downing two Indian warplanes and capturing a pilot.

No explanation has been given as to why the numbers have changed. One of the aircraft fell inside Azad Jammu &Kashmir, while the other fell inside Indian Occupied Kashmir.

IndiGo, India's largest carrier, Singapore Airlines-affiliate Vistara, Jet Airways India Ltd and Go Air said flights were suspended at several airports.

"We don't want to go on the path of war", he said.

Pakistan says its air forces shot down two Indian warplanes that had flown over its border in the disputed territory of Kashmir Wednesday.

Pakistan denied any involvement in the suicide attack and the prime minister promised investigation if India shared any actionable and credible evidence. "We should sit down and talk".

Indian administrator Baseer Khan confirmed that the airport in Srinagar, the main city in Indian-controlled Kashmir, was closed and said it was a "temporary and precautionary measure".

"Our action is just to let them know that just like they intruded into our territory, we are also capable of going into their territory", he added. He said his government had offered to cooperate in investigating the recent terror bombing in India Kashmir, and had warned against Indian aggression. The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, in a statement said, "This has the potential to lead to serious and unsafe consequences for the two countries and the wider region".
