CRPF jawan returns home
CRPF jawan returns home on April 8. “Today is the happiest day of my life and I always remained hopeful of his return. I thank the government,” his wife said on the news of her husband returning to her.

Rakeshwar Singh Manhas is a CRPF jawan who went missing during the Maoists’ attack on Chhatisgarh’s Bijapur on Saturday. His five-year-old daughter pleaded for his return in a video that went viral all over the country. The heart-touching video led to a tearful demand for his return. Read more here.

Meenu Manhas, the CRPF jawan’s wife was thrilled to get her husband back and said, “Today is the happiest day of my life and I always remained hopeful of his return. I thank the government for the same”.

The alleged abduction was believed to be done by the same attackers who killed 23 CRPF jawans, making the hope for his returns almost nil.

The five-year-old daughter said, “Papa ki pari Papa ko bohat miss kar rahi hai. Mai apni Papa se bohat pyaar karti hun. Please Naxal uncle, mere Papa ko ghar bhej do.”

Meenu Manhas urged the Government on the last day to take action for the release of her husband. The family joined in a protest on April 7, Wednesday, blocking a highway of Jammu and Kashmir, to demanding the release of her CPI captive husband.

Meenu was quoted saying, “If a jawan reports to his duty a day after his leave ends then action is surely taken against him. Now that a jawan is missing since April 3 no action has been taken by the government. We want the government to search for a mediator so that he is released.”

According to a picture released by the CPI on Wednesday, the jawan was shown in uniform under a makeshift roof. Moreover, the rebels had mentioned they would not harm the captured jawan, according to a report by Hindustan Times.
