New Delhi: India has conclusive evidence that Pakistan Air Force's (PAF) F-16s were involved in the aerial engagement on the Line of Control (LoC) on Wednesday as parts of AIM 120 AM-RAAM missile were found on the Indian side.

It is a beyond visual range missile carried by F-16s. A PAF F-16 was shot down by IAF combat air patrol but Pakistan is yet to acknowledge the loss even though visuals of wreckage of the aircraft appeared on Thursday.

A large number of PAF fighters had approached the LoC and were challenged by the IAF.

F-16, PAF's most advanced jet, was challenged and shot down by IAF's vintage MiG-21 Bison.

Wing commander Abhinandan Varthaman had engaged the aircraft and fired the R-73 missile getting better in the dog fight.
