LAHORE - Pakistan handed over an Indian pilot, who was captured by Pakistani troops inside Azada Jammu and Kashmir, to India as a gesture of peace amid armed escalation between two nuclear-armed rivals.

Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was received by Air Vice Marshals-RGK Kapoor and Sreekumar Prabhakaran of Indian Air Force at Wagah-Attari Border.

Abhinandan Varthaman had landed inside Pakistani territory after his MiG-21 Bison was shot down in a dogfight with PAF jets on Wednesday morning.

The pilot was welcomed back into the country with the following tweets.

Sidhu, who was suspended from The Kapil Sharma Show over his remarks on Pulwama attack, took to Twitter to say: “Prime Minister Imran Khan every noble act makes a way for itself… your goodwill gesture is ‘a cup of joy’ for a billion people, a nation rejoices.”
