New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday spoke to the family members of an Indian soldier, whose grandmother passed away after hearing the news of his capture in Pakistan.
The Home Minister telephoned the close family members of Chandu Babulal Chohan, son of Bashan Chohan, who hails from Dhule in Maharashtra, after learning about the demise of his grandmother.
Sources said Chandu's grandmother died of shock after hearing the news that he has been captured by Pakistani forces.
Singh assured Chandu's family members that the government is doing its best to bring back home the soldier safe.
Indian Army sources had said yesterday that "one soldier from 37 RR with weapon has inadvertently crossed over to the other side of the Line of Control. Pakistan has been informed by the DGMO on the hotline."
The sources said his crossing over was not related to the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army at terror launch pads in PoK.
Earlier, the Home Minister said the government has taken note of the reports which stated that an Indian soldier is in Pakistan's captivity and all attempts were being made to secure his release....
