Pakistan’s military said Wednesday that it has two Indian pilots in custody, captured after the Pakistani air force shot down their plane on its side of the disputed region of Kashmir.
Earlier, a military spokesman said Pakistan had shot down two Indian Air
planes in its airspace in Kashmir on Wednesday, with one of the planes coming down in Indian-held territory.
The military said the other Indian Air Force plane was downed on the Pakistani side of the Line of Control in Kashmir — a boundary separating the disputed Himalayan region between the nuclear armed neighbors.
