“All these photographs are not for you but for your families I could not meet. All of you and your families prayed for my health and I want to thank them all,” he said.

After his return to India on March 1, Varthaman, the son of a former high-ranking IAF official, underwent tests in Delhi and was subsequently posted out of Jammu and Kashmir as part of service policy as well as security reasons.
