His jet was shot down by Pakistan's Air Force during a dogfight along the border in the region of Kashmir, which is split roughly in half.

In a further sign that India was not in the mood to back down, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is facing a general election in April or May, adopted an aggressive tone yesterday.

Pakistan's information ministry also tweeted what it said was footage of one of the downed Indian jets.

However the military veteran insisted Pakistan does not want all-out war with India. "We should not even think of war, especially in view of the lethality of the weapons that we have", Mr Khan said. Those facilities were back to normal on Thursday, but flights both to the United States and Europe out of New Delhi were affected.

Authorities in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir closed all schools and educational institutions in the region and are urged parents to keep their children at home amid mounting tension with neighbouring India.

Images then circulated of his capture were both condemned for what appeared to be a physical attack at the hands of residents in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir, and praised for the actions of the Pakistani soldiers who intervened to create a barrier.

Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman is in Pakistan's custody since Wednesday.

One man was hospitalised after being hit by shrapnel, he added. Barricades were erected and additional officers were deployed in India's northern Punjab state, the Ludhiana District, the state of Gujarat and the desert state of Rajasthan. "All THAI flights from Bangkok to Europe departing near midnight of 27 FEB through early 28 FEB and from Europe to Bangkok departing on 27 FEB have been cancelled due to Pakistan airspace closure", the airline wrote on its Twitter page.

Meanwhile, fresh skirmishes erupted Thursday between Indian and Pakistani soldiers along the so-called Line of Control that divides disputed Kashmir between the two nuclear-armed rivals.

New Delhi accuses Islamabad of using armed groups as proxies to drive unrest in Kashmir and carry out "terror" attacks in India.

"Today, [India] has sent a dossier. we have received it, we will examine it, and now come and speak to us on the basis of this dossier", the foreign minister said.

India's army said Pakistani soldiers were targeting almost two dozen Indian forward points with mortar and gunfire.

The firing was significantly less elevated than the artillery fire exchanged by the two sides on Wednesday. There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said his Saudi counterpart, Adel al-Jubeir, would arrive in Islamabad later Thursday carrying a special message from Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
