    From what I read the Indians are claiming the raid was on a JeM camp where another suicide bombing mission was being prepared. The Pakistanis are of course disputing that.Report

      Pakistani Military Says It Downed Two Indian Warplanes, Capturing Pilot

      The fate of the Indian Air Force pilot in Pakistani custody was likely to further roil India ahead of the election, and New Delhi urged that he be treated with respect under the Geneva Convention, which forbids torture.

      By Wednesday night, three videos emerged of the pilot, including one featuring him struggling to fend off a mob of men in plainclothes in the middle of a forest. In that video, Pakistani soldiers yell at the crowd to stop beating the pilot and fire warning shots to restrain them.

      Another video showed the pilot blindfolded as Pakistani security officials asked him questions. A photograph from a third video, posted on Twitter by the spokesman for Pakistan’s military, showed Pakistani security officials interrogating the pilot.

      “The officers of the Pakistani Army have looked after me very well, they are thorough gentlemen,” the pilot said in the third video, his face swollen and bruised as he drank a cup of tea.
