Abhinandan Varthaman, an Indian fighter pilot who was captured and released by Pakistan a few weeks ago, has been sent on leave, Indian media reported Thursday.

According to the Hindustan Times, his debriefing has been completed by the Indian Air Force and other agencies. A medical board will assess his fitness and decide when he can rejoin the air force.

He has been sent on sick leave for a few weeks on the advice of doctors, the report said.

Varthaman’s plane was shot down by Pakistani jets on February 27 and he was captured by the Pakistan army soldiers. However, Pakistan released him on March 1 as “a peace gesture”.

    I don’t know how many lies the characterless Indian government and her media will generate to mislead own people?
