Rakeshwar Singh Manhas, a CRPF jawan who went missing during the Maoists attack on Chhatisgarh’s Bijapur on Saturday.

It is believed that he was abducted by the attackers who killed 23 CRPF jawans. Now his five-year-old daughter, Raghvi has tearfully demanded her father’s freedom.

Papa ki pari Papa ko bohat miss kar rahi hai. Mai apnay Papa se bohat pyaar karti hun. Please Naxal uncle, mere Papa ko ghar bhej do,” she said.

Family awaits the return of missing CRPF jawan

Apart from his daughter, the CRPF jawan’s 7-year-old nephew Akashalso questioned his uncle’s whereabouts. He started asking reporters about the same when they arrived at their home.

Rakeshwar Singh Manhas‘ house is now full of bereaved relatives who are awaiting his return. Many of them came from far off places, after reports on Manhas’ possible abduction started circulating. The CRPF jawan was supposed to return home on April 15 for a wedding.

His wife Meenu Manhas revealed that she had spoken to her husband five days ago over the phone. He had told her that he would be returning back after participating in an operation.

She then decided to call her husband’s colleague who reported that Rakeshwar had been missing since the first day of the Maoist attack. Then on Monday afternoon, a reporter from Bijapur told her to appeal for her husband’s release in a video.

Both Meenu and her 75-year-old mother-in-law, Kunti Devi said that they have faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi who assured that Rakeshwar will return safely.

According to reports, about 22 members of CrPF’s CoBRA unit went missing on Saturday after an alleged attack by the Maoists near Raipur. The district Reserve Guard and the Special Task Force faced an attack on Saturday during an insurgency operation, the officials said.

An official in Raipur claimed that the authorities can confirm the death of 22 force members at the hands of Maoist fighters. It is said that the Indian forces and the left-wing group got involved in intense firing which lasted for about four hours in the Sukma district of Raipur.
