Pakistan on Wednesday claimed that it shot down two Indian military aircraft over Pakistani air space and arrested one of the pilots but India said it knows of no such incident.

There are no reports of any Indian Air Force jet suffering damage in action by India's adversaries, defence sources in the Indian capital said.

 

They also added that they were verifying reports that an F16 Pakistani jet had crashed in Lam Valley across the Line of Control.

Pakistani military spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor claimed in a tweet that one of the aircraft crashed in Pakistan occupied Kashmir while the other fell in Jammu and Kashmir.

"One Indian pilot arrested by troops on ground while two in the area," he said without elaborating.
