Indian Air Force on Tuesday early morning took the revenge of Pulwama terror attack that claimed the lives of 40 CRPF jawans. Indian Air Force crossed the border and dropped 1000 kgs of laser explosives on terror camps in Pakistan’ Balakot and eliminated around 300 terrorists of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM). After facing massive humiliation across the world, Pakistan responded to India’s counter-terror strike and targeted military installations on the Indian side. Alert IAF gave a befitting reply and shot down one Pakistani fighter jet. Unfortunately, during counter operations, due to the technical snag, one fighter jet crashed and Pakistani forces arrested Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. While Indian authorities warned Pakistan and demanded Abhinandan’s safe release, Bollywood celebrities prayed for his safe return.
