Pakistan on Friday moved an Indian pilot captured from a warplane shot down in the disputed Kashmir region to a border crossing, where he was to be handed over to India. Pakistan's prime minister, Imran Khan, has said his country was returning the pilot, identified as Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, as a peace gesture following clashes that have escalated tensions on the Line of Control that separates the parts of Kashmir controlled by the two nuclear-armed neighbors. India imposed a security lockdown in parts of Indian-controlled Kashmir, and banned a major political and religious group in an ongoing crackdown against rebels seeking to end Indian rule in the region.
