India on Saturday returned the body of a Pakistani prisoner who was beaten to death last month in reported retaliation over a deadly attack in Kashmir.

Meanwhile, Umar Azam, a Pakistani government official, on March 2 said Indian troops with heavy weapons "indiscriminately targeted border villagers" along the LoC, killing a boy and wounding three others.

Indian media slammed the video as "distasteful" and said it breached global norms for prisoners of war.

India accuses Pakistan of arming and training the rebels and sending them into Indian-controlled Kashmir to launch attacks against government targets.

Two Pakistani army soldiers were killed in Nakiyal sector in one cross border exchange of fire, the Pakistan military said.

He said that Pakistan depends on its own domestic technology, whereas, India was 75 per cent dependent on others in missile technology.

Global powers, including China and the United States, have urged restraint to prevent another conflict between the neighbours who have fought three wars since independence from Britain in 1947. The air raid was followed by Indian shelling in Kashmir, which left four Pakistani civilians dead.

He added that Pakistani troops were "befittingly" responding to the Indian shelling. The service was suspended by Pakistani authorities this past week.

Varthaman was shot down over in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, which has seen rising tensions in recent weeks.

The confrontation erupted in the days following the February 14 Pulwama attack by Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed, in which over 40 soldiers were killed. When he crossed over to India Friday night, Abhinandan's right eye above his handlebar moustache appeared swollen.

The closure of the Pakistan air space has caused cancellation of six worldwide flights to and from Delhi's Indira Gandhi global (IGI) airport, here on Saturday.

Tensions escalated between Islamabad and New Delhi following a suicide attack on Indian security personnel in Indian-controlled Kashmir on February 14, which killed over 40 paramilitary troopers.

The casualties Saturday bring to six the number of people killed on both sides of Kashmir since overnight Friday. The US does not provide the country with any financial aid and neither it is any longer providing support for the F-16 fleet, Air Marshal (retd), B K Pandey says. Both sides claim all of the divided territory.

Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was in Pakistan Army's custody since Wednesday morning after his aircraft was shot down and he landed in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir following an aerial dogfight with the jets of Pakistan Air Force.

"We did not know whether we will get any shelter and how could we take our animals" with us, he said.
