Indian Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman disclosed in his video statement before his release  from Pakistan on Friday  that he was searching for a target when his plane was shot down by the Pakistan Air force.

He said  "I  ejected my plane and using a parachute landed".

He only had a pistol with him.

At reaching the ground, he was surrounded by an angry mob.

"  I  had only one way of saving myself i threw my pistol and decided to run" said the Indian pilot.

The Indian pilot goes on to saying that when he was being attacked by the mob, he was saved by  two soldiers and the Captain of the Pakistan army.

The pilot continues to say that after being rescued by the mob he was taken to the unit of the Pakistan Army, where he was given   first aid.


From there he was taken to the hospital for further medical investigation.

He says " I am very impressed by the Pakistan army".

Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman criticised India's media saying that they have a habit of exaggerating  news which is  misleading.
