Chhattisgarh: A jawan who longed to visit his dream house!PTI | Jagdalpur | Updated: 05-04-2021 17:26 IST | Created: 05-04-2021 17:26 IST
Samaiya Madvi, a jawan of the 'Bastariya' Batallion, had promised his family members that he would come home soon on a long leave and enjoy the stay in their ''dream house'' built by him only two months ago in Awapalli village in Bijapur district of Chhattisgarh.
A jawan of the 'Bastariya' Battalion, which was raised by the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) to recruit local youths in combating ultras, Madvi had joined the police force as a constable five years ago, his family member said on Monday.
The father of a 10-month-old son, Madvi's dream was to build a house of his own, which became a reality just two months ago, said his cousin brother Shankar Madvi.
''Even the 'Grihpravesh' (rituals performed before entering a new house) ceremony was performed. Madvi had told his family members that he would return soon on leave to enjoy a good time in his house. However, destiny wished otherwise.
Instead of Madvi, his mortal remains have reached the new house,'' he said.
''The martyrdom of these youths from Bastar will cost dear to rebels in the coming days as the people have started speaking against Naxals who have been banking on the support of villagers for their operations,'' relatives of some of the slain jawans said.
Of the total five brothers in the Sodi family, four had joined the police force except me, he recalled.
''I am proud that my brother has sacrificed his life while serving the motherland,'' Bheema Sodi said.
Faras, who got married one-and-a-half-years ago, became a father just four months ago.
One jawan is still missing, according to officials.
