IAF Pilot Abhinandan Varthaman’s Debriefing Over, On Sick Leave: Report


The debriefing of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who was captured by Pakistan and returned to India last month, has been completed by the Indian Air Force and other agencies and he is going on sick leave for a few weeks now, news agency ANI reported, quoting sources in the Indian Air Force.

The 35-year-old pilot was captured by Pakistani forces on February 27 after an air combat between the Indian Air Force and the Pakistani Air Force, the first in nearly half a century.

Tensions between India and Pakistan escalated last month after a suicide bombing attack on a CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terror group that killed 40 soldiers.

India then carried out “non-military, pre-emptive” air strikes on a Jaish terror training camp in Pakistan’s Balakot on February 26.  Read More
