    Earlier in the day, Indian armed forces officials confirmed having shot down a Pakistani Air Force F-16 that fell 10 km of the Line of Control in the Kashmir region.

    The Indian armed forces at a press conference, which was attended by a Sputnik correspondent, displayed parts of the AMRAAM missile fired from an F-16 which was recovered from Rajouri in Kashmir.

    This week, tensions between India and Pakistan escalated as the two countries engaged in an air battle following a terror attack earlier in February. 

    Pakistan claimed on Wednesday that it had downed two Indian warplanes which entered its airspace over the disputed Kashmir border.
