Watch: Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman returns to his base amidst celebrations

Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman’s aircraft was shot down in a dogfight February 27, after which he was taken prisoner by Pakistan and then released.

Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman has returned to his base in Jammu & Kashmir, according to videos being circulated on social media.

Abhinandan’s plane was shot down during an air-battle between India and Pakistan on February 27, following which he bailed out and landed in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. Abhinandan was attacked by a mob but was rescued by Pakistan’s army. He was returned to India as a peace gesture on March 1.

In the latest videos, Abhinandan can be seen posing for pictures with his colleagues.

“All these photographs are for your family members, since I could not meet everyone personally but I know their wishes played a role in my recovery,” Abhinandan can be heard saying to his colleagues.
