Soldier ‘assumed dead’ returns after 7 years

Jaipur: Dharamveer Yadav, an armyman, was assumed dead in a car accident in Dehradun in 2009. It was a road accident that had separated Yadav from his family and it was a similar mishap which brought them together. Five or six days back, a motorcycle hit Dharmveer when he was wandering on the streets of Haridwar. He received a mild injury to the head which brought his memory back.

After regaining his memory, he reached Behror in a bus from Delhi on Monday night using the Rs 500 the motorcyclist had given him after the accident. His father Kailash Yadav initially did not answer his call to open the door thinking he was either dreaming or there was some drunken man at the door.

Kailash told “After second or third knock, I realised that I was not dreaming and rushed to the door. I went numb after seeing my son who for us was dead. I could not even utter a word. My elder son and his wife also came and brought Dharmveer and me into the room. No one could believe that he had returned.”
