Statement by Official Spokesperson on 27 February 2019
Posted On: 27 FEB 2019 6:13PM by PIB Delhi
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. Against this Counter Terrorism Action, Pakistan has 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.

The Pakistan Air Force was detected and the Indian Air Force responded instantly. In that aerial engagement, one Pakistan Air Force fighter aircraft was shot down by a MiG 21 Bison of the Indian Air Force. The Pakistani aircraft was seen by ground forces falling from the sky on the Pakistan side. In this engagement, we have unfortunately lost one MiG 21. The pilot is missing in action. Pakistan has claimed that he is in their custody. We are ascertaining the facts.

Income Tax Department hits at terror financing activities in J&K Region
Posted On: 27 FEB 2019 8:39PM by PIB Delhi
The head of a prominent organisation allegedly indulging in anti-national activities alongwith his associates were covered in a sensitive search action by the Income Tax Department today. Search action has been conducted at 4 premises in the Valley and 3 in the national capital. The search action has yielded credible evidence of large scale undisclosed financial transactions carried out in the business of quarrying, hotels etc.

During the search, clinching evidence was also unearthed of huge unaccounted expenditure having been incurred in cash on the reconstruction and remodeling of the residential premises presently being used by the tax evader’s family. Despite carrying out large scale financial transactions, neither the main protagonist nor any member of his family has ever filed any income tax return. The evidence found in search action is robust enough to show a deliberate and willful attempt to evade tax.

In the search action, 3 hard discs have also been seized. The analysis of the information contained in the discs is likely to yield even more substantial evidence against the tax evader and his associates. This action is part of a concerted drive to trace illegal sources of funding that have financed the separatist elements and their activities in the Valley.

Pakistan demarched on the act of aggression against India
February 27, 2019

The Acting High Commissioner of Pakistan was summoned this afternoon by MEA to lodge a strong protest at the unprovoked act of aggression by Pakistan against India earlier today, including by violation of the Indian air space by Pakistan Air Force and targeting of Indian military posts.

This is in contrast to the India’s non-military anti-terror pre-emptive strike at a JeM terrorist camp in Balakot on 26 February 2019. It is unfortunate that instead of fulfilling its international obligation and bilateral commitment to take credible action against terrorist entities and individuals operating from its soil, Pakistan has acted with aggression against India.

It was clearly conveyed that India reserves the right to take firm and decisive action to protect its national security, sovereignty and territorial integrity against any act of aggression or cross-border terrorism.

India also strongly objected to Pakistan’s vulgar display of an injured personnel of the Indian Air Force in violation of all norms of International Humanitarian Law and the Geneva Convention. It was made clear that Pakistan would be well advised to ensure that no harm comes to the Indian defence personnel in its custody. India also expects his immediate and safe return.

Regret was expressed at continuing denial by Pakistan’s political and military leadership at the presence of terrorist infrastructure in territories under its control. A dossier was handed over to Pakistan side with specific details of JeM complicity in Pulwama terror attack and the presence of JeM terror camps and its leadership in Pakistan. It was conveyed that India expects Pakistan to take immediate and verifiable action against terrorism emanating from territories under its control.

KSE 100 stock index tanks nearly 4% after Indian Air Force shot down Pakistan's F-16 jet

Karachi Stock Exchange’s benchmark index KSE 100 made a low of 37,330.38 on Wednesday as against Tuesday's closing value of 38,821.67, falling as much as 3.85%

Panic swept the trading floor on the Karachi Stock Exchange on Wednesday. After a 785 points plunge on Tuesday, Pakistan's benchmark stock exchange KSE 100 tanked further on Wednesday after the Indian Air Force shot down Pakistan's F-16 jet, which reportedly violated Indian air space, in retaliatory fire.
......................
Worth mentioning here is that the KSE 100 represents 85% of all the shares listed on the Karachi Stock Exchange.

Yesterday (Tuesday) the KSE 100 fell below the 39,000 mark for the first time in 32 sessions after Indian Air Force on Tuesday conducted air strikes at the Jaish-e-Mohammed's (JeM) biggest training camp, killing "a very large number" of terrorists and their trainers. IAF fighter jets returned safely without any casualty after making heavy damage to the terrorist outfit.

India won't buckle under pressure, forces given free hand to take future course of action

Last Updated: February 27, 2019 | 22:34 IST

9:55pm : In a high level meeting-headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it was decided that India will not buckle under pressure. Navy, Air and Army have been given a free hand to take a future course of action. A befitting reply would be given at a proper time.

Course has been adjusted to show that the flight is actually travelling over Krygyzstan. It was a sudden change, as well (flight was being updated offline?).

tactical reading today:

- Pak airspace is still entirely closed. no domestic, no international flights. their radarsa and SAMs are hot as any shadows from indian side could be a inbound indian strike or decoy feint. this will have an economic effect not the least on PIA and its dubai economic pipe.

- to make matters more tender, Jaitley has given a talk on why cannot india launch as Op Geronimo type strike and bodily harm some terror masters? "soch liya to mumkin hai" to misuse the mumbai marathon slogan :) so any radar shadows sneaking in at low level must also be watched for.
https://www.ndtv.com/india-news/us-navy ... ey-2000102
(one can trust Jaitleyji to drive home a thin sharp knife with his "musings" and SC lawyer type smooth talk - note the word 'can', not 'will' but who can guess what his intentions are?)

- their POL stocks are barely a week per a TOI article today. they are belatedly taking steps to prioritize for armed forces . this will have an economic effect. https://www.pakistantoday.com.pk/2019/0 ... ed-forces/

- India had topped up all northern depots 6 days ago, and POL to kashmir valley is being supplied since yesterday after a 4 day outage due to snow.
it is in TOI print edition (I could not find the link)

- a 2 hr increase in time for westbound flights from india (per TOI)

- P4 is indifferent and midly supportive of india. usa alone has violated the paki backside 100s of times using drones and manned a/c

- while pak was denied the coveted predator drones, a Hyd co has already tied up with general atomics to locally train the pilots here
