In response to India’s airstrike on February 27, the very next day, Pakistan also tried to take revenge by an airstrike in Jammu and Kashmir. During this aerial battle of jets, something went wrong with an Indian fighter plane and its pilot jumped but landed in Pakistan instead of India.

Pakistan imprisoned him and was released on 1 March. The name of the bravest Indian Fighter Pilot was Abhinandan Varthman, later he was awarded with Vir Chakra by the Indian Government for his unmatched bravery. Pakistan authorities were released his rescue videos and images as well.
