Abhinandan, who returned home on Friday, is undergoing a thorough medical check up at the hospital as his body had undergone stress due to ejection from his MiG-21 jet after it was shot down by Pakistani firing on February 27.
He was also manhandled by a crowd after he landed in a village in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
