SRINAGAR — Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said that they will release Indian pilot Abhinandan Varthaman tomorrow as a “peace gesture”.
“As a peace gesture, we are releasing Wing Commander Abhinandan tomorrow,” ANI news agency quoted Khan as having said.
Khan has reportedly told Parliament about the proposed gesture.
Earlier, MNS President Raj Thackeray had said, “If Pakistan frees the captured IAF pilot Abhinandan Varthaman and orders a ceasefire, then Prime Minister Narendra Modi should grab his Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan’s offer for talks.”
“If this can be achieved, then we can believe that Imran Khan’s intentions are noble. If all this takes place, then Modi should not let this opportunity pass by,” he had said.
Wing commander Abhinandan was captured by Pakistan after his fighter jet was shot down on Wednesday.
