Pakistan has freed an Indian fighter pilot captured after his plane was shot down in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was handed over to Indian officials yesterday at the only legal border crossing with Pakistan.


Minutes earlier, the pilot said on Pakistani TV that he was "very impressed" by the Pakistan army.

On Thursday Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan said the pilot's release was a "peace gesture" to India.

India and Pakistan - both nuclear powers - claim all of Kashmir, but each controls only parts of it.
