India deploys top fighter jets in Kashmir

India has deployed its top fighter jets in Kashmir, officials and a report said on Wednesday.

At least six Russian-built Sukhoi-30MKI jets, capable of carrying nuclear weapons, have been deployed at Avantipura air force base near Srinagar.

The Kashmir deployment comes amid strains in the India-Pakistan peace process, with New Delhi accusing Islamabad of renewed support for cross-border militancy and ceasefire violations along the Line of Control.

The base is equipped with crash-prone MiG-21 jets, which India first imported in the 1960s.
