New Delhi, ANI. Former Air Force Chief BS Dhanoa said on Thursday that the Indian Air Force would have destroyed his army’s advance line in response to the action taken by Pakistan after the Balakot air strike. At that time our military posture was very aggressive. On 27 February 2019, Indian Air Force boy planes bombed its bases in Balakoch, Pakistan.
Former Air Force Chief BS Dhanoa’s statement came after revelations by Wing Commander Abhinandan Vardhaman of Pakistan MP Ayaz Sadiq. Sadiq claimed that Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had said that India would attack if Wing Commander Abhinandan Vardhaman of the Indian Air Force was not released by 9 pm.
Dhanoa told that Abhinandan’s father and I served together. So, when Abhinandan’s plane crashed in Pakistan, I told him that we could not bring Ahuja back, but would definitely bring Abhinandan back. During the Kargil war, my flight commander Ahuja was captured by Pakistan and shot dead. He said that at the time of reception, there was diplomatic and political as well as military pressure on Pakistan.
