AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday expressed his grief and concern for the Indian Air Force pilot who was "missing in action" and said Pakistan must respect its obligations under the Geneva Conventions.

"Our prayers are with the brave IAF pilot & his family in this very difficult time. Under Article 3 of Geneva Conventions, every party is required to treat prisoners humanely. Pakistan must respect its obligations towards the IAF pilot, regardless of ongoing circumstances," Owaisi tweeted.
