On 27 Feb, 2019 Indian Wg Cdr Abhinandan shot down the F16 of Pakistani Wg Cdr Shahzaz Ud Din of 19 Squadron.
Who was Wing Commander Shahzaz-ud-Din?
Shahzaz-ud-Din was the son of Waseem-ud-Din who also had served as an Air Marshal of the Pakistani Air Force.
Shahzaz was flying PAF F16 which was shot down in a dogfight overthe Nowshera sector.
The Pakistani pilot had escaped safely and ejected in Pakistan occupied Kashmir. He was later succumbed to the injuries in the hospital.
This is still not confirmed how the Pakistani F-16 Pilot Shahzaz-ud-Din died. Whether he died due to the injuries or due to the attack of local men. Because as per the news, he was reportedly lynched by a mob who mistook him to get a part of Indian army as couple of days back only India army had attacked the terrorists area.
It was really very tragic that two brave soldiers if the two countries fought in the mid air but one could survive while other was lynched by it’s own mob.
