  1. Two days ago indian media reported an accident in kashmir took place in that accident two IAF pilots were died and one pilot named Pandy was the pilot of Su 30 mki so possibly it can be a cover up of that Su 30 mki which was shot down by PAF on 27 Fab (fell in IOK) pilot were died on same day but due to strong reaction of indian public they just hide and removed all of the stuff and now they made this story and reporting an accident in that a Su 30 mki pilot named Pandy has been died with another pilot of IAF.
    So truth is that a Su 30 mki was definitely shot down by PAF and indian government trying to hide it from their public but truth reveals one day and the day has come truth has been revealed.
    An American based Magazine Foreign Policy has revealed that No PAF F-16 is missing all of the aircrafts have been counted and inspected very keenly and are present on PAF basis.
    In fact the second aircraft with Mig21 that was shot down by PAF is Su-30 mki which india still trying to hide bcz of aggressive reaction of indian public but it’s being cover up from the first day.
    But truth always prevails.
    And truth is that two IAF aircraft were shot down by PAF one was Mig-21 Bison and second was Su-30 mki.
