Responding to the issue, a senior Indian Air Force (IAF) official in the Western Air Command said, "There is no truth in the allegations, it is all rubbish."
The official said, 'We haven't even received any complaint from the Pakistani air force.'
Dawn News of Pakistan quoted Pakistan Air Force Air Commodore Humyun Viqar as saying, "Both the Indian aircraft entered into Pakistan's airspace between two to four nautical miles at two different sectors." He said the Pakistani jets responded, forcing the Indian aircraft to turn back.
Information Minister Sherry Rehman told Dawn News that the Indian leadership had been contacted, and the incident was described as 'inadvertent', and that the Pakistan air-force and army had been placed on alert but 'did not wish to escalate the situation' any further.
