0 312

The handing over of pilot Abhinandan Varthaman to India at Wagah was delayed on Friday as he was asked to record a statement on camera by Pakistani authorities before he was allowed to cross the border, official sources said.

Facing backlash for releasing the seemingly edited video, the Pakistan government later took it down from its official Twitter account, Radio Pakistan. It was not clear whether he was made to record the video under duress as the video had several jump cuts indicating that it had been edited heavily, apparently to fit Pakistani propaganda.
