The Wing Commander was caught by Pakistan after his plane went down amid a fight at the border on Wednesday. Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan had reported that he would have been released as “PEACE GESTURE”, signalling the facilitating of pressure after the two nations occupied with a flying conflict first time in around half a century. Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman will be given over to India at the Attari-Wagah border tonight. India needed to bring him back from Pakistan by any special flight, yet was denied permission. India, state sources, did not need Abhinandan Varthaman to return to media and crowd frenzy at Attari-Wagah. Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was in an air fight with one of the 24 Pakistani F-16s that tried air strikes over the Line of Control on Wednesday and shot it down before his jet slammed and he was forced to eject.
