I gave an explanation. With Abhi being caught, used for propaganda and our own Mi17 which was a bigger disaster shocked the conscience of IAF and political circle. It's just 1 mig down anyway, not 2. Unlike Pakistan it's impossible to hide pilots/soldiers death in India nor escape an parliamentary scrutiny. Ispr still don't have an answer for doosra Bandi. Anyway that's not the scope of topic.If IAF was that Good Why didn't IAF responded? Since they were 2 aircraft down, must have avenged that.
Mi17 disaster stopped IAF retaliation after that and priority was given to take back abhinandan.
