Convinced of safe return of CRPF commando abducted by Naxals: LG
Jammu: Lt Governor Manoj Sinha on Wednesday expressed confidence that the abducted CoBRA commando held hostage by Naxals after a recent gun battle with security forces in Chhattisgarh’s Bijapur district would “return safely”.
Sinha said efforts being made for the release of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) commando Rakeshwar Singh Minhas cannot be made public.
“I want to tell you that the Union home minister (Amit Shah) and Chhattisgarh chief minister (Bhupesh Baghel) are keeping an eye on the situation. Our sympathies are with the (abducted) jawan and we are convinced that he will return hale and hearty. The god will return him safely (to us),” the LG told reporters on the sidelines of a function in Kathua district.
“The efforts (for the release of the jawan) are not such that can be made public,” the LG said.
