Wing Commander Abhinandan says Pakistani Army treating him with respect

Capture of IAF pilot Here’s how Pakistan must treat him under the Geneva conventions

Two pilots and a civilian were killed, according to the local police The Pakistani army also says it shot down two Indian fighter planes above Pakistani territory.

Air Canada says it has temporarily suspended flights to India due to the closure of Pakistani airspace.

Pakistan was under intense pressure from the USA, the UAE and Saudi Arabia to de-escalate the tensions with India in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack and release the Indian pilot.

Mr Hunt said he had spoken to his counterparts in India and Pakistan in recent days and urged both sides to "de-escalate and reduce tensions".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: "We strongly support rapid dialogue between India and Pakistan in order to reduce the conflict, reduce the tensions and deal with the root causes of it before more lives are lost". Earlier today, Pakistan media outlets have shown a blooded Indian soldier that was captured after the shooting of the IAF fighter jet who ran after Pakistan's fighter jets that are supposed to drop bombs in IoK.

On Tuesday, India launched airstrikes in Pakistan that it later claimed killed hundreds of suspected fighters. In the latter half of the day, a video of him "being treated well" was also circulated. Pakistan's military insisted they had no choice but to respond, and did so. At the same time, India has hoped that the young officer is to returned soon.

The Foreign Secretary said clashes between nuclear-armed rivals India and Pakistan over the disputed territory are "extremely dangerous".

By the evening, there were reports that mortar fire had been exchanged between Indian and Pakistani troops across the disputed boundary line in Kashmir.

Meanwhile, as the tensions and confrontation escalated between India and Pakistan, authorities asked workers to paint rooftops of hospitals and clinics in red and white with medical emblem of cross in Srinagar city. The ministry has told them that Pakistan has targeted Indian military bases violating Indian air space. As recently as November, Pakistan's Khan spoke of "mending ties" with India.

After speaking to both the Indian and Pakistani ministers for foreign affairs earlier in the day, Pompeo said in a statement that he "expressed to both ministers that we encourage India and Pakistan to exercise restraint, and avoid escalation at any cost".

"A dossier was handed over to Pakistan side with specific details of JeM complicity in the Pulwama attack and the presence of JeM terror camps and its leadership in Pakistan", the statement said. The latest wave of tensions between Pakistan and India first erupted after Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for a February 14 suicide bombing on Indian paramilitary forces on the Indian side of Kashmir that killed more than 40 troops.
