March 28, 2019
Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who was captured by Pakistan last month, has returned to his squadron in Srinagar. Varthaman, who is currently on a sick leave, chose to get back to his squadron just a few weeks after his return back to India from Pakistan. According to reports, Varthaman wanted to stay with his squadron instead of going back to his home town in Chennai for sick leave.
Social media users were praising Varthaman for choosing to be at his squadron during his sick leave.

Varthaman had gone on a 12 days leave a few days ago. After his leave gets over, he will be reviewed for mental and physical fitness before he joins back to the Indian Air Force.
Varthaman was captured by Pakistan during an air strike between India and Pakistan on 27 February. He was later released by Pakistan government on 1 March as per norms of the Geneva Convention. While in Pakistan, he was repeatedly asked questions about his squadrons and also details about Indian Air Force. But Varthaman chose to stay calm and refused to answer to any of the questions. Varthaman became a national hero after the incident.
“See the Jajba of war Hero Abhinandan. He Joined get his squadron at Srinagar in spite 4 weeks Sick LeaveHePreferred to Stay withTeammates Instead of his family at Chennai.JaiHind”, tweeted S Kumar Rao.
