about the video

Parents of Indian Air Force pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman arrived in the national capital to receive their son. They were greeted with standing ovation, claps and cheers in the flight. A video shot inside the Chennai-Delhi flight is being widely circulated on social media. The IAF is likely to be released by Pakistan at Attari-Wagah border in Punjab, two days after he captured by the Pakistan Army. He had landed in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir after his aircraft fell down following an aerial dogfight with the Pakistan Air Force on Wednesday morning.
