NEW DELHI: Former Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena told the Delhi High Court that she has not faced any gender-based discrimination during her stint in the Indian Air Force (IAF).

Saxena maintained that she is grateful to the Air Force for giving her an opportunity to serve the nation, including in the Kargil War.

A suit filed by the Centre, seeking a decree of permanent injunction against the Netflix, Dharma Productions from streaming Janhvi Kapoor starrer 'Gunjan Saxena - The Kargil Girl.' 

Centre said that the film shows IAF in poor light and dents its image as it shows that the force is gender-biased.

Saxena had mentioned before that there were sexist people in IAF but the organisation is bigger than anyone.
