Instead, it said that Abhinandan will be returned through Attari-Wagah border. After a day-long wait on Friday, Abhinandan crossed the border and arrived at Wagah. He was soon whisked away by the IAF officials in a convoy by Indian officials away from the public glare. He was taken to the Air Force Central Medical Establishment After returning where he underwent a series of medical tests as part of a “cooling down” process.
