Arunachal Pradesh again! Wildest thought comes to my mind of any sort Chinese Involvement in it.
Possibilities of Russian military hardware failure cannot be rulled out and least are the chances of human errors with IAF so rigoursly training it pilots and engineers.Should be thoroughly investigated.

Something seems fishy as all crashes are happening in that region. Hope Chinese are not using some high frequency (laser type) signals or some invisible technology to do this.
