THE LAST rites of CISF personnel from Bhopal Dinesh Singh, who was killed in a Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh, were performed in the capital on Sunday.

Dinesh Singh, a CISF jawan, was posted at the Bailadila Ordnance Depot in Dantewada district of Chhattisgarh. He was among the eight jawans who died when Naxalites attacked the depot three days ago.

The body was brought to his residence at Saket Nagar today. The deceased’s family and relatives paid last respects. Later, his mortal remains were consigned to flames with full honours. The senior officials of CISF were present at the Subhash Vishram Ghat.

A large number of people bade tearful farewell to the departed soul. The relatives and family members of Singh were hurt over the delay in bringing the body to Bhopal.

“In army there is a proper system but here the pain becomes unbearable as one waits for the body,” said a relative. Singh is survived by his wife and a child. His wife is pregnant. The deceased’s father is a retired BHEL employee. His brother is also in BHEL. He had joined the CISF in 1994.
