I was honestly thinking the same thing when reading through @Tejas Spokesman 's post.I must thank you for sharing such a gem of information for my knowledge and [ushing me to make some efforts to dig into some more information based upon OSINT. Let's just begin with geography/locations of some villages including the one where the AMRAAM was found along with geographical evidence based upon Districts/Tehsil and location along with the details you shared.
Tehsil Chassana is a part of Reasi. Chassana village is located in Gool Gulabgarh Tehsil of Reasi district in Jammu & Kashmir. The total geographical area of village is 986.6 hectares.

Interestingly. Rajouri is nearest town to Chassana which is approximately 179km away which is in-fact a driving distance and would be different than a direct fly path. A rough estimate if I may say.
So, the peace of that AMRAAM Aim-120C5 was found in Chassana village, district Reasi which is close to only town namely Rajouri. I am sure you will agree with the points as above which are official and as per google as well. A rough estimate of a direct fly path from Chassana Village, Reasi to Rajouri shows that 21.70 Miles or 34.92 KM maximum (rough estimate).
Now, we have an Indian news ABP clip whereby a news media outlet records interview of eye witnesses most probably from IOJ&K Nowshera (as that what the media person said during interview). I am not even mentioning the RT with PAF which pretty much validates as what really happened to ill fated SU-30 MKI. Interestingly, these eye witnesses saw an IAF A/C coming in from Rajouri side and flying towards LoC but they saw taking a hit and going down in Peer Baba/Bhawani-B side while pointing. Mind you, people do point towards a certain location in reference to some famous point even if that is far ahead, merely to draw a path/way or as a guiding point. Surely, no one can exactly pin point the location merely by looking at some projectile coming down in far area. This video is here with detail of an eye witness account for 2nd IAF loss. The places mentioned & reference recorded are nowhere close to IAF MiG-21 Bison (Abhinandan) crash site. This finding and important information by ABP News was also shot down by India or avoided/censored deliberately to cover an extra loss on that day, the SU-30 MKI.
Now we have another mention of Bhawani B (Locality Name : Bhawani-b ( Bhawani-बी ), Block Name : Nowshera, District : Rajauri) which does fall within Rajouri district.

In reference to what Eye Witnesses said and as the Indian Media claims that IOJ&K Police recovered the debris of AIM-120C5 AMRAAM of PAF from Chassani village, here I try to make some rough estimate with an exception of human error for me as well as for the eye witness that nobody as such can exactly point the area merely by looking in a direction. Since, these are locals so they at-least tried to show some pathway as where the IAF 2nd jet went down.
Since, the crash was reported and IAF had to go on SAR, Mi-17V5 was launched which was targeted by Indian Air Defence on outskirts of Budgam with 6 onboard (fratricide). If we pay attention then it had the same trajectory fly path to which IAF A/C previously flew as per Eye Witness but got a hit and returned.
Even if these sites are far and not in same direction the eye witness mentioned, what really happened in that area of Bhoani or Bhawani B, Sher Makri and between Rajouri to Nowshera. Mind you, these places are not inside Azad Kashmir but in-fact IOJ&K. Here is what Hindustan Times has to say...

Another news says
“There is enough evidence to show that F-16s were used in this mission through their electronic signatures. Parts of AMRAAM air-to-air missile, which is carried only on the F-16s, was recovered east of Rajouri within Indian territory,” Air Vice Marshal R.G.K. Kapoor told reporters.
Again the Nowshera Sector...
This news peace was also taken down immediately.
Great own goal by him.
