After the terror attack at Pulwama, Indian Air Force had bombed terrorist camps in Pakistan yesterday. Pakistan Air Force attacked Indian defence bases today as retaliation, but Pakistan’s F-16 jets were chased away by IAF’s MiG-21 jets, and one F-16 jet was shot down. India also lost one MiG-21 in the process, and the pilot has been captured by Pakistan.

Following these incidents, there are increased chance of terror attacks by Pakistan based terrorists in India, and public places like the Delhi Metro can be prime targets of such terror operations. The red alert for Delhi Metro has been issued on threat perception of such attacks.
