Both the pilot and the co-pilot were safe, Pune rural police superintendent Manoj Lohiya said.

The jet came down on a grassy patch of land near village Theoor and there were no casualties or damage to any property on the ground either, police said.
    
Top Air Force and police officials rushed to the spot from where the pilots who ejected in time were taken to safety, police said.
    
No details about the crash and possible reason for it were released by the Southern Command office here. A similar crash involving Sukhoi 30 had occurred near Pune about two years ago.
    
The IAF base here has a squadron of Sukhoi fighter jets.
