Bastar IG P Sundarraj said there's a strong possibility of the missing jawan being in Naxals' captivity. He said forces conducted a search operation at the encounter site but couldn't find him. The cobra jawan was part of a squad that had gone for an anti-naxal operation on Friday. “Among the jawans killed and injured in naxal attack, one is still missing. Constable Rakeshwar Singh Manhas is of the 210th battalion of CoBRA (Commando Battalion for Resolute Action). The search party has been looking for our missing soldier. We got to know via social media that he has been abducted by Naxals. There is a possibility that it's true, we are verifying the information. We will take necessary action to get the missing jawan back safely,” Sundarraj said. Manhas went missing on Saturday after a gunfight along the border of Sukma and Bijapur. As many as 22 security personnel were killed and 31 others were injured in the fierce gunbattle.

Watch: Purported video of Sitalkuchi firing goes viral, TMC calls it 'genocide'

A purported video from Sitalkuchi in Bengal's Cooch Behar is doing rounds on social media. Four villagers had died in the area in an altercation with CRPF jawans during the fourth phase of polling. Ruling TMC said video vindicates its position that there was no provocation for CRPF to fire. TMC MP and spokesperson Derek O'Brien went on to dub it as cold-blooded genocide. The video shows many locals gathered in a field, while some are seen wielding sticks. In the viral video, some central force jawans can also be seen. Soon firing can be heard, though it is not clear who fired the shot. Video shows a ruckus erupt in the area after the shots are fired. Earlier, Cooch Behar SP had said there was rumour that police opened fire. Debasish Dhar had added that the rumour led locals to come out in large numbers. The SP had said that this led the Central forces to open fire in self defence.
