Indian Air Force jets force heavy cargo plane from Pakistan to land in Jaipur, pilots being questioned

The India-Pakistan border and skyline has been tensed after the February 14 Pulwama attack by JeM terrorists that killed 44 Indian soldiers.

The fighter jets of Indian Air Force have forced a heavy cargo plane coming from Pakistani air space to land at Jaipur airport. The heavy cargo plane is reportedly an Antonov AN-12 plane that was coming from the Pakistani air space.


As per reports, a statement from the IAF says that the aircraft was from Georgia and it was scheduled to fly from Karachi to Delhi. However, the plane reportedly deviated from its assigned flight path and entered the Indian air space from an unscheduled point in North Gujarat.

Alert Indian fighter jets immediately intercepted the plane and it was forced to land at Jaipur airport. The pilots are reportedly being questioned by Indian authorities.

It is reported that 2 Sukhoi Su-30 MKI fighter jets had intercepted the plane.


The India-Pakistan border and skyline has been tensed after the February 14 Pulwama attack by JeM terrorists that killed 44 Indian soldiers. India had invaded deep into Pakistani territory with a group of Mirage 2000 jets and had bombed a JeM terrorist training camp in Balakot to smithereens. Pakistan had attempted to invade Indian airspace on the very next day that had resulted in an on-air dogfight between Indian jets and Pakistani F16S.

India’s wing commander Abhinandan had shot down an F16 with his Mig 21 Bison.
