During an airborne war between Pakistan and India on Tuesday, Indian Mig-21 Bison shot down the Pakistani F 16 Fighting Falcon. Wing Commander Abhinandan who was the pilot of Mig-21 Bison landed in Pakistan and was taken into custody by Pakistan’s Army. However, news about the Pakistani pilot flying the F 16 Falcon was unheard of or hushed down by Pakistan’s media. Later it was learned that Pakistani locals confused him to be an Indian pilot and beat him up mercilessly, causing severe injuries to him.
Pakistanis who initially claimed that two Indian pilots had been taken into custody by them, realised that one of those pilots is a PAF commander only. Wing Commander Shahzad Ud Din was admitted in hospital for treatment and reportedly succumbed to his injuries yesterday.
The Human Rights Department of the United Nations has summoned Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan for gross human rights violation after beating up their own pilot to death. More details awaited.
