‘If Abhinandan was brought back from Pak…’: Missing CRPF jawan’s kin to govt

Family members of missing CoBRA jawan urged the government to take action and ensure his release.

This comes after Maoists claimed that the missing CoBRA commando is in their custody.

Maoists also sought the appointment of a mediator to whom he could be handed over.

Constable Rakeshwar Singh Manhas went missing after the gunfight along Chhattisgarh’s Sukma-Bijapur border.

Meanwhile, Rakeshwar’s family along with locals blocked the Jammu-Akhnoor highway.

Demanding his release, the family alleged that neither the Centre nor the state governments are taking action to bring the jawan back.

The CoBRA jawan was part of a squad that had gone for an anti-Naxal operation on Friday.

As many as 22 security personnel were killed and 31 others were injured in the fierce gunbattle.

Coimbatore defence corridor gave Tamil Nadu a new 'Identity': CM Yogi

Ahead of assembly elections in the state, UP CM and BJP Leader Yogi Adityanath held a rally in Coimbatore on March 31 and said that defence corridor gives its state a new identity and maintains its safety. "PM Modi and the then Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman established a Defence corridor in Coimbatore as a result of which Tamil Nadu's Wing Commander Abhinandan combated Pakistan when India did surgical strike on it to protect its border," the minister said. "When we look at the DMK-Congress alliance in Tamil Nadu, we find that they insult mothers and use filthy language for them. Those who can't respect women, can't have the right to come to power," he added.
