Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Thursday that Indian Air Force pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, now in Pakistan's custody, would be released on Friday "As a peace gesture, we are releasing the captured Indian pilot tomorrow," he told a joint session of Parliament. "We also sent a message to him. This wasn't due to any weakness. Our forces are battle-hardened but we don't want escalation."
