The DG ISPR relayed that, we have caught two Indian pilots; one of them is shifted to Combined Military Hospital (CMH) owing to his injured condition, while the other is in custody.

"We encourage India and Pakistan to exercise restraint, and avoid escalation at any cost", Pompeo said in a statement after speaking with his counterparts from both countries.

PTI said the Pakistani jets dropped bombs while returning but that there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

The aircraft was brought down in Jhangar area of Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri sector, officials in the Indian Army said.

Eyewitnesses said soldiers fired warning shots into the air to keep residents away from the crash site. It was not clear if the shutdown applied to commercial overflights.

The Pakistan government was under tremendous global pressure to de-escalate the tensions with India and release the captured pilot.

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".

"We have no intention of escalation, but are fully prepared to do so if forced into that paradigm", said Mohammad Faisal, the foreign affairs ministry's spokesman.

India accused Pakistan of allowing militant groups to operate on its territory.
