Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman News
A new development confirms the Pakistani government accepting defeat in front of India. A Pakistan leader claimed that fearing an attack by India, the Imran Khan government had released IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. IAF's Wing Commander Varthaman had landed in Pakistani custody in February 2019 after a dogfight between Indian and Pakistani pilots.
Indian Air Force (IAF) Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa and Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman on Monday flew sortie in MiG-21 fighter aircraft in Pathankot, Punjab. During the Pakistani counter-attack on India on February 27 in response to Balakot airstrikes, Abhinandan had shot down an F-16 of Pakistan Air Force from his MiG-21 Bison fighter.
Ahead of the much-awaited clash between India and Pakistan at the ICC World Cup 2019 on June 16, an advertisement aired by a Pakistani channel has drawn the ire of netizens for mocking Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman's capture after his plane was shot down a day after the IAF struck terror camps in Balakot.
