The first official confirmation came on October 13 when Pakistan’s DGMO said that Sepoy Chandulal was indeed in Pakistan Army’s custody and his whereabouts was conveyed to India by Pakistan army’s military operations directorate.

Sepoy Chavan was posted with 37 Rashtriya Rifles at Mendhar, Jammu and Kashmir and on September 29, just hours after Indian Army’s surgical strikes had “inadvertently crossed LoC” to the Pakistan side.

His whereabouts since then was not known, and the stress of not knowing about her grandson had killed Chavan’s grandmother two days after his disappearance.

She had suffered a cardiac arrest after the family was informed that Sepoy Chandulal had been captured by the Pakistan Army.

Since then Home Minister Rajnath Singh has assured Chavan’s family that the ministry will bring Sepoy Chandulal back as soon as they can.
