Pakistan also violated the ceasefire early morning, although India retaliated strongly.

Acting US Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan is urging India and Pakistan to avoid further military actions after the two countries engaged in an air battle, Pentagon spokesperson Lt. Col. Dave Eastburn said in a statement. However in this our MiG 21 crashed and the pilot present in it is missing.

In video circulating on social media in both countries, a blindfolded man with a bloodied face identifies himself in English as Wing Commander "Abhinandan", and the camera pans to an Indian air force logo on his jacket. He is an IAF pilot and was on Operational Readiness Platform (ORP), a term used for pilots who are on stand by to repel any air intrusions by enemy aircraft. The aircraft reportredly fell three kilometres inside Pakistan.

- Ravish Kumar has also confirmed that only one pilot of Indian Air Force is missing.

The latter had claimed responsibility for a suicide bomb that killed at least forty Indian paramilitaries on February 14, 2019. They however, are unified that he should not be handed over to India until the conflict between the two states is officially resolved.

Pakistan's envoy to the United States, Asad Majeed Khan, said Islamabad would like to see the Trump administration play a more active role in easing the crisis.

NCA oversees the operational command and control of the country's nuclear arsenals.

The violence Wednesday marked the most serious escalation of the long-simmering conflict since 1999, when Pakistan's military sent a ground force into Indian-controlled Kashmir at Kargil.

"We are releasing the Indian pilot as a goodwill gesture tomorrow", Khan told lawmakers.

The massive uproar between the two neighbouring countries have attracted global attention. He said that one Pakistani fighter jet was also shot down in the encounter.

Director General of the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor addressed a press conference earlier today and said Pakistan wants peace and India needs to understand war is a failure of policy.
