February 27 still haunts the Indian armed forces as Pakistan Air Force (PAF) reminded the enemy of who they were dealing with post-Pulwama incident.
7 months down the line, the Indian Air Force has finally admitted in clear words that shooting down Mi-17 helicopter was a ‘big mistake’ on their part. Indian Air Chief, Rakesh Kumar Bhadauria made this confession earlier today after the conclusion of an inquiry against the involved IAF officials.
He added that the IAF will ensure that they will not shoot down their planes anymore.
