In retaliation to Pulwama attack, Indian Air Force (IAF) launched an air strike on Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terror organisation in Pakistan’s Balakot on Tuesday early morning. In response, the Pakistani Air Force targeted military installations on the Indian side on Wednesday. Alert IAF gave a befitting reply to Pakistan and forced PAF to go back. During the operation, Indian Air Force’s Wing Commander Abhinandan’s jet crashed and he was arrested by Pakistani forces. But before that, Abhinandan’s MiG 21 had shot down Pakistan’s F-16 fighter jet.

However, a day after, Pakistan PM Imran Khan announced that they will be releasing him as a gesture of peace. And now, he is safe and back to India.
