Video of arrested Indian Air Force pilot released

ISLAMABAD: Video of one of the Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot, who was arrested from Azad Kashmir after Pakistan shot down two Indian fighter jets, has been released.

“My name is Wing commander Abhi Nandan. My service number is 27981. I am a flying pilot. My religion is Hindu,” the arrested Indian pilot revealed.

When asked to speak more, he replied: “Sorry, Sir. That s all I’m supposed to tell you.”

The video was released few minutes after Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, the director general (DG) of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), concluded his press conference, confirming the arrest of two Indian Air Force pilots.

“Today morning, Pakistan Air Force engaged with six targets at the LoC. Because we are a responsible state and want peace, we decided that we will not use any military target.” the army spokesperson said.

“As a result of engaging our target, no human life was affected. Staying within our jurisdiction, six targets were locked. And we carried out the strike.”

“Pakistan is not pushing the environment towards war,” he made it clear, adding Pakistan deliberately avoided escalation.
