Wing Commander Abhinandan will be released today at the Wagah Border after getting captured by the Pakistan army during aerial combat between Indian and Pakistani fighter jets.
New Delhi: The entire country is eagerly waiting for the news of India’s hero, Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman walking towards India at the Wagah border.
In a "gesture of peace", Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan announced the release of Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan, who was taken captive by Pakistan yesterday. As per reports, the Pakistan Prime Minister was speaking at the country's parliament. "Yesterday I tried to call (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi to say that we don't want escalation. Our push for de-escalation doesn't mean we are afraid," Imran Khan said. "We have an Indian pilot. As a peace gesture, we will release him tomorrow (March 01)."
As the news began trickling in, celebs and netizens from all over heaved a sigh of relief.
Post the announcement of his release, his parents have already reached Amritsar to meet their son. They received a standing ovation from all the passengers on board. Even Bollywood stars have been tweeting since yesterday and have been eagerly awaiting Abhinandan’s return at Wagah Border.
