Use all ‘diplomatic and military channels’ to have IAF pilot released: Deora

Vastavam web: Congress leader and former city MP Milind Deora urged the Union government Wednesday to use all “diplomatic and military channels” to ensure the release IAF pilot detained by Pakistan. “This is a sensitive matter. Jingoism around Indo-Pak conflict will only add fuel to fire. We need responsible journalism and responsible political discourse,” he added in a statement here. Indian Air Force’s Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman is in Pakistani custody after his plane was shot down amid rising tension on the Indo-Pak border.
