Bankura: His leave was sanctioned and
CRPF jawan Ashis Bagal was all set to come home after more
than a year; but that was not to be.

Bagal was one of the 75 CRPF jawans who fell prey to
Maoist bullets at Dantewada in Chhattisgarh on Tuesday.

And now instead of welcoming him, his shocked family
waited for his body to arrive in Dhabani village in this West
Bengal district.

"My leave application has been accepted. I shall come
home soon," the 28-year-old jawan had told his younger brother
on phone.

Quoting his father Kanai Bahal, SP Vishal Garg said
that Bagal had last visited his home in March last year for
his marriage with Kadam Devi.

The sole bread earner in the family of seven, Bagal
joined the CRPF in 2003 before he could clear his higher
secondary examination.

His coffin was flown to the Kolkata airport today.
