NEW DELHI: An MRI scan has revealed that no bugs had been implanted in India Air Force (IAF) pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan, who was released on Friday by Pakistan as peace gesture.
The medical tests found an injury in his lower spine which could have happened following his ejection from the MiG-21 fighter plane after an air skirmish with Pakistan, the report said
Abhinandan will undergo some more tests and treatment at the Research and Referral Hospital in Delhi Cantonment.
Pakistan repatriated Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman to India on Friday as a peace gesture. He was taken into custody Wednesday after Pakistan Air Force (PAF) shot down his fighter jet over violation of its airspace.
The medical tests also confirmed Pakistan’s claim that the captured Indian pilot was treated with dignity and in line with international law.
Last Friday, IAF pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman entered his home country India via Wagah Border after Pakistan released him as a peace gesture.
Tensions between Pakistan and India escalated on February 14 when a young man rammed an explosives-laden car into an Indian paramilitary convoy, killing at least 44 soldiers.
PM Imran offered every possible help in the investigation, but India turned down the offer and whipped up war hysteria.
