Wing Commander Prithvi Singh Chauhan, who was martyred in a helicopter crash in Kannur, Tamil Nadu, was a better pilot, but the accident took him away. There is a gathering of relatives and people at his house throughout the day. Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya reached Prithvi’s house and consoled his elderly father Surendra Singh and mother Sushila. Prithvi’s sisters are in bad condition.
Prithvi’s father Surendra Singh tells that the last time Prithvi came to his house in Agra on the day of Raksha Bandhan. This was the first time when his sisters tied a rakhi together. Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya had a program in Agra on Thursday. But he canceled his program and he went straight from Kheria airport to Prithvi Singh’s house.
