India asks Pakistan to immediately return IAF pilot Abhinandan

New Delhi, Feb 27; India has summoned the acting high commissioner of Pakistan and demanded immediate and safe return of an IAF pilot who was detained by Pakistan, following an aerial engagement by air forces of the two countries.

It has also been made clear to Pakistan that no harm should be caused to the Indian defence personnel. The External Affairs Ministry told that, it has conveyed strong objection to the neighbouring country at the ‘vulgar display’ of an injured personnel in violation of all norms of International Humanitarian Law and the Geneva Convention. India expects the pilot’s immediate as well as safe return from Pakistan.

Pakistan detained Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman following a engagement between air forces of the two sides along the Line of Control in which a Pakistani jet was downed.
