Arrested Indian Pilot Abhinandan Returns To India Via Wahga Border

  • 27

Indian Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman has been returned to India via Wahga border as a peace gesture.

The pilot was taken into custody by the Pakistan Army after his plane was shot down for violating Pakistan’s airspace. During the custody, Abhinandan said that he was extremely impressed by the professionalism of the country’s armed forces.

“Pakistan Army officers are thorough gentlemen and have been professional. Starting from the captain who rescued me from the mob. This is exactly how I expect my army to behave too and I would not change my statement if I return to my country,” Abhinandan.

Prime Minister announced on Thursday that the Indian pilot would be released on Friday as a peace gesture. He said that Pakistan believes in peace and that war was not the solution to the ongoing crisis.

Khan said that the main reason for tensions between Pakistan and India was Kashmir and that the dispute could only be resolved via dialogue.

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor confirmed that Pakistan had shot down an Indian jet and arrested a pilot. He also reiterated Pakistan’s wish for peace but said that the country was capable of striking back in case of any aggression.
