Abhinandan flying fighter plane again depends on his fitness: IAF chief

Indian Air Force (IAF) chief B.S. Dhanoa on Monday said Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman will be allowed to fly a fighter plane again only if he is found physically fit.

Speaking to the media here, Air Chief Marshal Dhanoa said: “Abhinandan flying again depends on his medical fitness. If he is fit to fly a fighter plane then he will go back to the same unit.”

He said the physical fitness requirement for flying fighter planes are very stringent and the rejection rates are high at the entry level.
Queried about the number of casualties in the February 26 IAF strike in Balkot, Pakistan, he said it was for the government to give out the number.
“We don’t count casualties. We see whether the target is hit or not,” Dhanoa added.(IANS)
