Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman is in Pakistan Army’s custody since Wednesday morning. He had landed on the other side of the Line of Control after his aircraft fell down during aerial dogfight between India and Pakistan.

During his address in the joint session of Pakistani parliament, Khan said“I tried to speak to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as I want to de-escalate prevailing tension between the two countries.”
