In Pakistani captivity for two days, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman displayed valour par excellence.

Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman returned home to a hero's welcome on Friday night (March 1).

 

2/5

Abhinandan had been in Pakistani captivity for two days. He had engaged and shot down a Pakistan Air Force F16 jet on Wednesday before his own MiG-21 Bison jet crashed. Although Abhinandan managed to eject, he landed in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir.

 

3/5

Scenes at the Attari-Wagah border were both emotional as well as joyous.

Pakistan, true to its character, played the delay tactics by pushing back Abhinandan's release through the day.

 

5/5

Abhinandan's return, however, has brought together India in saluting Indian armed forces' personnel for their valour and their sacrifices.
