Bhubaneswar: Reunited with junior engineer Pabitra Majhi after his release by Maoists, his mother on Sunday sought her son`s transfer from Naxal-affected
Malkangiri district.

"I am glad that my son has been freed after seven days in captivity. But now I want him to be with me at least for sometime," Parvati Majhi told reporters when her 22-year-old son joined the family here after his release four days ago.

After serving in the tribal-dominated district, Pabitra should be transferred to some other place so that he would be able to be with the family, she said.

Pabitra would be able to work for the tribals even if he is brought here, his mother said.

Celebrations broke out at Pabitra`s house at Salia Sahi locality here when he arrived. His family members and relatives distributed sweets and people danced to drum beats.

Pabitra and Malkangiri district collector RV Krishna were abducted by Maoists on February 16 from Chitrakonda area of the Naxal-hit district. Both of them have been released.
