New Delhi, Feb 27: Close on the heels the government said that Pakistani attempt to target India’s military installations were summoned, India on Wednesday summoned Pakistan’s Deputy High Commissioner Syed Haidar Shah and a protest was lodged.
The ‘capturing’ of an Indian pilot by Pakistan was also raised.
Earlier, MEA spokesman Raveesh Kumar told reporters: “India had informed about Counter-Terrorism (CT) action it took yesterday against a training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) in Pakistan based on credible evidence that JeM intended to launch more attacks.”
He said, against India’s Counter Terrorism Action, Pakistan “responded this morning” by using its Air Force to target military installations on the Indian side.
“Due to our high state of readiness and alertness, Pakistan’s attempts were foiled successfully,” he said.
However, while one MiG 21 was lost, pilot of Air Force has also gone ‘missing in action’.
India is ‘ascertaining’ the claims made by Pakistan through unofficial channels about the capture of the pilot.
Sources said Pakistan has not informed India ‘diplomatically’ about the capture of the pilot even as photograph and the video has gone viral on social media.
The government sources have cautioned people against rumour mongering.
Meanwhile, according to media reports, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has pressed for peace
and said “all wars are miscalculated and no one knows where they lead to”.
