Indian Air Force Chief BS Dhanao on Monday briefed the media on Air Strikes in Balakot (Pakistan) and said India hits our target and can’t tell the number of human casualties. He said, ‘The air force doesn’t calculate casualty numbers, the government does that’. He added, ‘The government will clarify that. We don’t count human casualties, we count what targets we have hit or not. We hit our target. The air force doesn’t calculate casualty numbers, the government does that’ Dhanao said.

While Speaking about the MiG 21 BISON, Dhanao said, ‘One is a planned operation in which you plan & carry out. But when an adversary does a strike on you, every available aircraft goes in, irrespective of which aircraft it is. All aircraft are capable of fighting the enemy”.

Talking about Wing Commander Abhinandan return to the cockpit, Dhanao said, ‘Whether he (Wing Commander ) flies or not depends on his medical fitness. That’s why post-ejection, he has undergone a medical check. Whatever treatment required, will be given. Once we get his medical fitness, he will get into fighter cockpit’.

While addressing a meet in Coimbatore on Monday, Dhanoa said, the Mig-21 Bison is a capable aircraft, it has been upgraded, it has better radar, air-to-air missiles and better weapons system. The Air Chief Marshal said the target has been clearly amplified by FS in his statement. “If we plan to hit the target, we hit the target, otherwise why would he (Pak PM) have responded, if we dropped bombs in the jungles why would he respond”, he added.
