Abhinandan Vartaman had been kept as a captive in Pakistan from 27th February to 1st March 2019. When his flight was shot and he landed in Pakistan, the Pakistanis manhandled him. When he was taken under the control of the Pakistan army and kept as a captive, Abhinandan didn’t open about the mission and the flight which he was piloting.
After a while, the Pakistan government agreed to release Abhinandan and he is now at Wagha Border. His parents had arrived in Delhi from Chennai to receive their son. They got the standing ovation in the flight by the co-travelers for bringing up such a brave soldier. Punjab Chief Minister requested the Pakistan government to admit and release all the Prisoners of War with them.
