    The wreath-laying ceremony of the jawan was held at the police battalion camp at Mana on the outskirts of the capital today following which the body was sent to his native place in Bijapur, he said.

    State Home Minister Ramsewak Paikra, Director General of Police A N Upadhyay and other senior police and CRPF officials paid tributes to the martyred jawan.

    Abahiyya and another jawan had sustained injuries in an improvised explosive device (IED) blast detonated by ultras while a joint team of security forces was out on an anti-Maoist operation in the forest of Madded police station area on September 22.

    Soon after the incident, he was airlifted to Raipur for treatment.
