Diplomatic pressure and tough message from India forced Pakistan to release IAF pilot, claims shameless Indian media
NEW DELHI - Diplomatic pressure from India and the strong message that India sent out to Pakistan after Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman has resulted in to release of IAF Pilot, claimed disgruntled Indian media.
He was taken into custody by forces across the LoC on Wednesday. A day later, Imran Khan announced that the IAF pilot will be released on Friday in what he termed was his country's 'peace gesture.'
His announcement though cannot hide India's firm and direct resolve to bring back the IAF pilot, Zee News has reported.
India had strongly condemned the display of the injured pilot on Wednesday and said it was a violation of the Geneva Convention. Pakistan had also been warned to hand back Wing Commander Varthaman. S
Meanwhile, New Delhi had also mobilised the world community with the Ministry of External Affairs briefing 10 diplomats to apprise them of the Indo-Pak situation and the status of the IAF pilot.
Signs that Pakistan was under pressure began showing when the country's foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said earlier in the day on Thursday that the IAF pilot could be released if it assures peace with India.
The announcement from his prime minister came just hours after.
