Today, Pakistan will return back Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman. The pilot was captured by Pakistan after an aerial fight and after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan announced his release as a “peace gesture”. After India carried out an air strike targeting a terror training camp in Pakistan, earlier this week, the hostilities between the two states peaked. Before the incident, on February 14, Pakistan based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad attacked Indian CRPF convoy killing 40 personnel at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir.
On Wednesday, Pakistani F-16 tried to target military facilities in India when Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman in an air fight defended them. Meanwhile, he was shot down before his jet crashed and he was forced to land across the Line of Control.
A video was uploaded in an official Twitter account of Pakistan showing the pilot blindfolded and wounded. While he was being investigated he answered calmly. The video was removed very soon because it proved that Pakistan has violated the Geneva convention which led to global calls and both the states were advised not to further use military forces.
UAE Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed wrote on Twitter that he had made “telephone calls to the Indian and Pakistani Prime Ministers” stressing the “importance of dealing wisely with recent developments and giving priority to dialogue and communication”.
“Pakistan has targeted our military installations. They have escalated matters. If they provoke us any further, we are prepared for exigencies,” said Major General Surendra Singh Mahal, who represented the Army.
All the countries across the world like UAE, Russia, France, the US along with other countries urged both India and Pakistan for maximum restraint. Pakistan would have had to release Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman under the Geneva Convention and also for global pressure.
