“I was trying to find my target when your air force shot me down,” Indian Air Force’s Wing Commander Abhinandan was seen saying in a video clip released by the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), Pakistani military’s public relations wing.
“After that I had to leave my aircraft, which had broken down, and I had to eject. After ejecting…. when I fell down I had a pistol.”
He said upon falling on the ground he saw too many locals and attempted to escape.
“There were a lot of people. I had only [one] way to save myself, so I dropped my pistol and I started to run. People followed me, at the same time, two jawans of the Pakistan Army came and saved me,” Abhinandan said.
