Later, Indian police say officials have recovered four bodies from the wreckage of an Indian air force helicopter that crashed in Indian-controlled sector of Kashmir.

"PAF shot down two Indian aircrafts inside Pakistani airspace", military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor tweeted Wednesday. Meanwhile, India has reportedly fired mortar bombs into Pakistan killing civilians, including children.

Airspace over Leh, Srinagar, Jammu, Pathankot and areas bordering Pakistan were shut indefinitely on Wednesday in the wake of the security situation building up in the area. Pakistan has also claimed it had shot down two jets of the Indian Air Force. This action was purely in self-defense and with no aggressive designs.


As per media reports Pakistani fighter jets crossed LoC and entered into Indian Occupied Kashmir's air space on Wednesday, 27 February. An Air India official said that the airline has chose to avoid flying worldwide airlines over Pakistani airspace. Locals rushed to the spot and video-graphed the incident on the mobile phones. 1 aircraft fell inside AJ&K, other fell inside IOK.

The announcement comes just one day after Indian jets conducted an air strike on Pakistan's north-west province.

His cousin Shahnawaz Hussain told The Indian Express that Kifayat was sitting about 30 metres away from them, when they heard a blast in the air and saw an aircraft hurling towards them. In powerful retaliation, Indian forces bombed five forward posts across the LoC. "India use Pakistan airspace for flights to Gulf countries, Europe and United States of America". The region is split between Pakistan and India and claimed by both in its entirety.
