He said the strike was foiled and a Pakistani military plane was shot down over its own territory.
Meanwhile, the Foreign Ministry in Islamabad said the country's air force was carrying out airstrikes Wednesday from within Pakistani airspace across the disputed Kashmir boundary but that this was not in "retaliation to continued Indian belligerence".
The statement also noted reports of airport closures and flight cancellations in various Indian states, including Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Uttarakhand.
Citing senior officials, Indian media outlets reported that the condition of the Pakistani pilot was unknown as several Pakistani fighter jets on February 27 "violated Indian air space in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch and Nowshera sectors before being pushed back by Indian aircraft".
On Tuesday, India responded with an air strike on what it described as a militant training camp inside Pakistan, saying it had killed "a large number of terrorists".
Pakistan's foreign ministry spokesman Mohammad Faisal said the "sole goal of this action was to demonstrate our right, will and capability for self defense".
Although the statement did not name the IAF pilot, Pakistani army has put out a videoclaiming that it captured Wing Commander Abhinandan.
On February 26, the Indian military launched what it said were retaliatory air raids which allegedly destroyed a "terrorist" training camp in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

He said Pakistan scrambled its warplanes and the Indian jets released their payload "in haste" near Balakot. The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, in a statement said, "This has the potential to lead to serious and unsafe consequences for the two countries and the wider region". "One of the aircraft fell inside AJ&K [Pakistan-controlled Kashmir] while other fell inside IOK [Indian-controlled Kashmir]".
India described the strike as preemptive and driven by highly specific intelligence about a credible imminent threat.
In a dramatic day of conflict between the neighbours, Indian sources said Pakistani fighter jets had violated airspace over Indian-administered Kashmir, but were forced back over the Line of Control in the disputed territory.
There are still significant questions over what, if anything, was struck by India's fighter jets in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Following PAF's successful strikes earlier in the day and the downing of the two Indian planes, Prime Minister Imran Khanaddressed the nation and decision makers in neighbouring India to reiterate his message of peace and offer for dialogue. But accounts diverge from there. Pakistan said it has already evacuated thousands of civilians from the border area, leaving behind only those civilians with ready access to concrete bunkers. Khan said, alluding to the nuclear arsenals both countries possess.
And both India and Pakistan laid claim to this border state which abuts both the two countries.
