An Indian Air Force pilot was killed Tuesday when his MiG-21 fighter crashed in Anantnag district in Jammu and Kashmir, the IAF said. Defence Minister Arun Jaitley, who took charge earlier in the day, said he was “extremely sorry” to learn about the accident and called it a “matter of great concern”.  An IAF statement said the MiG-21 (Bis) crashed about 10 km short of the Awantipur air base at around 10.45 a.m.
