India later confirmed the loss of one of its planes and said it had shot down a Pakistani fighter jet, in a conflict played out over the skies of the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir.

Earlier, a video was released by Pakistan Army showing the identity and related details of the captured Indian pilots. The aircraft fell three kilometres in Pakistani-administered Kashmir.

As the PAF jets approached the LoC, the Indian Air Force (IAF) scrambled fighters.

The situation was no different in villages along the Line of Control in Indian-controlled Kashmir, where residents were moving to safer places following the intense exchange of fire, which began Tuesday and continued Wednesday.

She said the limited objective of India's pre-emptive strike inside Pakistan on a terrorist training camp Tuesday was to act decisively against the terrorist infrastructure of Jaish-e-Mohammad group, to pre-empt another terror attack in India.

British Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt said the United Kingdom government had been "working round the clock" to encourage Pakistan and India to "de-escalate and reduce tensions".

He also praised Pakistan's military.

The clash occurred in Kamalkote area.

New Delhi had promised to act, and on Tuesday its warplanes flew into Pakistani airspace and struck what it said was a camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), the militant group that claimed the Kashmir bombing.

According to sources, the meeting decided that Pakistan would not be the first to carry out any attack, but if India tries to impose war, then Pakistan would effectively respond.

China called on Pakistan and India on Wednesday to "exercise restraint" and seek dialogue after Islamabad said it shot down two Indian warplanes in its airspace over disputed Kashmir. The identity of the other is not known.

Pakistan has closed its airspace, a European air traffic control agency said on Wednesday, amid rising tensions and military activity between Pakistan and India. He is a son of a retired Air Marshal. A Su-30 pilot, Abhinandan was commissioned in 2004. Its veracity is yet to be established.

The pilot was injured and was being treated at a military hospital, Ghafoor said.

"I also encouraged both ministers to prioritize direct communication and avoid further military activity", said the US top diplomat. Pakistan denied that any of its planes have been downed. "One Indian pilot arrested by troops on ground".

Wednesday's incidents - the worst escalation between the two countries in 40 years - comes after Indian jets carried out strikes against what it said was a training base of the militant group responsible for a bloody suicide bombing almost two weeks ago.
