MRI scan shows no bug implanted in Abhinandan

NEW DELHI: The Indian government found no bugs implanted in India Air Force (IAF) pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman.

According to a report of an Indian news agency ANI, the MRI scan shows no bug was implanted in the pilot.

The report said that the Indian security agencies were checking for any which could be implanted in Abhinandan who was returned by Pakistan on Friday.

The scan also showed 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, adding that the rib injury could have occured due to assault by a mob soon after he landed on ground in Azad Jammu and Kashmir after his aircraft was shot down.

Abhinandan was rescued by soldiers of the Pakistan Army from the mob, as per his own account.

The ANI report said Abhinandan is due to undergo more check-ups and treatment at the Research and Referral Hospital in Delhi Cantonment for the next 10 days.

Pakistan had earlier stated said that the captured Indian pilot was treated with dignity and in line with international law. “While in captivity, Abhinandan was treated with dignity and in line with international law,” the Foreign Office said in its statement.
