Varthaman and the Indian Air Force claimed to have shot down a Pakistani F-16 aircraft during the aerial combat, a claim rejected by Islamabad. However, he bore several injuries in the process of ejecting out of his aircraft. Despite everything, Varthaman expressed his wish to continue flying to the IAF brass.

Varthaman, who has been recommended for a Vir Chakra, the third highest wartime gallantry award, had to undergo a two-week-long debriefing by the security forces after his return. He was lauded extensively on social media by politicians, celebrities, and the common masses for his display of unwavering courage and stealth.
