The Pakistani Air Force, on Wednesday, explicitly violated the Indian Air space by sending in jets in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch and Nowshera areas. Nonetheless, the Indian Air Force successfully drifted them.
A senior official said that the jets had dropped bombs on their way back but luckily, no casualties or damages were reported.
Several news reports said that parachute was identified when the jets were going down
An IAF chopper also crashed at J&K’s Budgam area on Wednesday morning. The area was on high alert thereafter. The helicopter, a Russian model MI-17, had crashed in an open field around 10:05 am. Two dead bodies were discovered, said an officer.
Due to security reasons, airports at Amritsar, Jammu, Srinagar and Leh were shut down for some time. While flight operations had been suspended at Amritsar and Dehradun, airports at Jammu and Leh had been closed down for civilian traffic.

There was the deployment of army officials on the Indian Pakistan border as a measure to counter any provocation by the Pakistani forces.
India is planning to get Abhinandan Vardhaman back to the country. According to the Geneva Convention, Pakistan must return Abhinandan back to India.
An inhuman behaviour was seen as the wing commander was beaten by the locals and the Pakistani army. The Pakistani media has shared videos and photos of the wing commander which clearly show his face with severe injuries.
