According to government sources, there have been reports that state that IAF pilot Abhinandan went through “a lot of mental harassment” while he was in Pakistan’s custody.

The Wing Commander, who was returned to India by the Pakistani officials late Friday night, was sent to a hospital in New Delhi for an extensive medical evaluation. A government source has reportedly quoted Abhinandan’s statement claiming he did not go through any physical torture, although he was subjected to a lot of mental harassment during the 58 hours he spent in the country’s custody.

Abhinandan Varthaman was captured by the Pakistani Army on Wednesday after his MiG-21 Bison fighter jet was hit by Pakistan Air Force jets near the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir. He was returned to India at the Attari-Wagah border at 9.15 pm on Friday night.
