Pakistan will release captured Indian air force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman today as a gesture of peace towards New Delhi and a de-escalation effort in favour of regional peace.

Amid tight security, the Indian pilot has arrived at the Waga Border where he will be handed over to Indian officials.

IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan was captured when his MiG-21 was among two Indian military aircraft shot down by Pakistan Air Force after they violated the Line of Control (LoC).

The move to release the pilot was announced Thursday by Prime Minister Imran Khan at a joint session of Parliament, a day after Pakistan shot down two Indian aircraft that had crossed the Line of Control (LoC) and captured Wing Commander Abhinandan.
