India Demands Pakistan Release Downed Pilot
Wing commander Abhi Nandan was shot down and captured in Pakistan yesterday after cross-border raids by the two countries this week.

India called the video a “vulgar display.” Meanwhile, Pakistan has closed its airspace, forcing international flights to be rerouted.
