They had threatened Pakistan with war in February when they had made false claims that Pakistan shot their chopper
The Mi17 V5 chopper was shot down at Budgam near Srinagar a day after IAF fighters went into Pakistani territory. The incident took place in the backdrop of heavy shelling and firing from across the border after the Balakot strike.

Turns out that they had mistaken their helicopter as the “enemy aircraft”
The officers handling the air defense system at that time had mistaken their helicopter for an enemy aircraft. Much to their surprise, it was found that the helicopter crashed 10 minutes after take-off. Visuals showed the wreckage of the chopper in flames and a large number of villagers gathered around it.
A court of inquiry found that the chopper was brought down by friendly fire from the Spyder air defense missile system at the Srinagar airbase.
IAF Chief on Mi-17 chopper crash in Srinagar on Feb 27: Court of Inquiry completed & it was our mistake as our missile had hit our own chopper. We will take action against two officers. We accept this was our big mistake and we will ensure such mistakes are not repeated in future https://t.co/TgNS9RsKqb

People are obviously getting mixed feelings of anger and happiness after Indian Air Force finally accepted their own fault in rising tensions but clearly, nobody was surprised
Of course, people came up with “told you so’s” and “hamein pehly sae pata tha” …
ہاہاہا۔۔۔۔بے شرم کہیں کے۔۔۔۔جو پاکستان کو اسی دن پتا چل گیا تھا۔۔۔۔انہیں 7 مہینے بعد پتا چل رہا ہے۔۔۔۔🤣😂

People also speculated that the reason why it wasn’t accepted before could be to help Modi’s election campaign which hinged on fighting Pakistan
It does make sense. It took seven months for India to figure out that the remains of the disfigured helicopter were of their helicopter and not a Pakistani Aircraft as they first had claimed for it to be. And within these seven months, elections took place and to everyone’s great surprise, Modi was reelected.

People were thoroughly confused as to the series of events that took place back then
Of course, questions have to be raised to truly get to the root of logic that the Indian officials were and are using.
First they denied it and then with their own missile?
What’s next? That their pilot came for shopping in Pakistan?

Of course trolling the Indian Air Force couldn’t be forgotten
If it is not a crash, it will be a shot and that too from their very effective missile system. Fantastic.

Immediately after Abhinandan was captured by Pakistan Army, Indian filmmakers had rushed to grab titles for their upcoming films regarding the heroic actions of Abhinandan and the dare-devil risk taken by Indian forces after the Pulwama attack.
They should make a bollywood movie on this investigation – name should be "7 month investigation"
They should also add that Pakistan told them these things immediately after the incident but they were high on cow-mootar at that time. 😁
