He did not elaborate beyond saying the pilots were being "treated well" and made no mention of them being returned to India. Asked about attributes important for a pilot, he says: "Bad attitude". He sips tea and says he's being treated well by the Pakistani military, calling his captors "thorough gentlemen". The user also mentioned that may the Almighty bless Indians, as they do not know the meaning of Islam. That year also saw an Indian fighter jet shoot down a Pakistani naval aircraft, killing all 16 on board. "The Indian Air Force responded instantly", he said. An official at the Airports Authority of India declined to comment.

India has confirmed one of its planes was shot down by Pakistani planes and a pilot is missing.

"Pakistan would be well advised to ensure that no harm comes to the Indian defense personnel in its custody".

"Pakistan Air Force's F-16 that violated Indian air space was shot down in Indian retaliatory fire 3 kilometers within Pakistan territory in Lam valley", the New Delhi-based news agency ANI reported February 27.

Local officials on the Pakistani side said at least four people had been killed and seven wounded, though it was unclear if the casualties were civilian or military. Indian officials said there was a possibility that he was further beaten as the clip does not show any injury to his face.

She added: "India does not wish see further escalation of the situation and India will continued to act with responsibility and restraint". "That is why we undertook the action with clear warning and in broad daylight".

The statement also noted reports of airport closures and flight cancellations in various Indian states, including Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Uttarakhand.

"PAF shot down two Indian aircrafts inside Pakistani airspace", tweeted Major General Asif Ghafoor. "For flights that are going to depart this evening we will call an urgent meeting to consider the impact of such events", said Thai Airways President Sumeth Damrongchaitham.

Qatar Airways said in a statement it has temporarily suspended flights to eight cities in India and Pakistan "due to the ongoing situation on the India-Pakistan border" and that its flights routed over the India-Pakistan air space may be delayed due to rerouting in the area. Moscow said it is willing to assist in strengthening New Delhi and Islamabad's counter-terrorism potential.

Earlier, senior Indian police officer Munir Ahmed Khan said an Indian Air Force plane crashed in the Indian-controlled sector of Kashmir. It wasn't immediately known if there were casualties. Eyewitnesses said soldiers fired in air to keep residents away from the crash site.

Both countries claim the entire mountainous Himalayan region of Kashmir but rule in part. India has named Maulana Masood Azhar, the leader of the Jaish-e-Mohammed residing in Pakistan, as the person responsible for ordering the attack.

He said that all wars are miscalculated, and said that better sense must prevail.
