Bihar: Sikander Yadav, a Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) jawan was shot dead in front of his family while they were celebrating his daughter’s fourth birthday.
Sikander was on a leave to his native village Pandethika in Bihar’s Jamui district when Maoists dragged him out of his residence and shot him on Monday.
Apparently, two of them came to his house dressed in police uniform looking for him and once he was out, twenty more of them came and pounced on him and dragged him away at gunpoint.
Speaking to TOI, SHO (Barahat) Sunil Kumar said, Sikander had been shot several times just a few feet away from his house.
The villagers mentioned that there were women involved in the incident too. The Maoist called Sikander a police informer and claimed that they were punishing him and rushed to the jungle after he was dead.
Nothing can be worse than the citizens of one country fighting amongst one another. Not to forget he was a soldier and was working day and night for the citizens of the country which also include the Maoists. The innumerable sleepless nights he must have gone through just to protect all of us and this is what he gets in return. Nobody deserves this, and he was our saviour. This is not only sad but it also shows how corrupted we all are when it comes to our own people, our brothers, our kin. An immediate probe should be taken and a rightful action should be taken against the respective group.
