A CRPF jawan posted in Maoist violence-hit Sukma district of the state has caught social media attention by posting a video wherein he is suggesting the possibility of becoming ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ if his land related disputes are not solved.
In the video, Pramod Kumar of 74th battalion CRPR has alleged that his relatives at his native place in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh had not only encroached upon his ancestral land but thrashed his brothers badly.
“One of my brothers was thrashed badly by them (relatives) while another is missing. I am not certain if he is alive. I had informed my senior officers about the incident and they had talked to SP Hathras and District Collector but to no avail,” Pramod claimed in the video.
According to Pramod, despite knowing everything Hathras police was doing nothing but was silently supporting the offenders. “I am a solider of the nation, I don’t want to take any wrong decision. But when I can lay my life for the country then for my brothers’ I can also become Paan Singh Tomar,” Pramod said in the video and ended it with ‘Jai Hind’.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel talking with reporters assured that he would pick up the issue with his counterpart in Uttar Pradesh and try to get the problem solved. Paan Singh Tomar was a soldier in the Indian army, who had later became a dacoit following a land feud.
Collector Sukma Chandan Kumar while talking with media said that he had personally talked with Hathras district collector and that his counterpart had assured of personally looking into the case and swift action into the same.
