India is expecting safe return of soldier Chandu Chavan, who had inadvertently strayed across the border last year as Pakistans latest response on his release has been “quite good”, Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre today said.

The minister, however, said it is difficult to tell the date.

“Chandu immediately next day after the surgical strike had inadvertently crossed the LoC to Pakistan side. Since then the Indian government, DGMO and MEA, are in contact with Pakistan through the right forum. Initially the response was not good, but the latest response was quite good.

“So, we are hopeful. Unfortunately, they have not committed any particular day. But, we are hopeful they were talking positively this time. So, we are expecting his release some other time. But then it is very difficult to say the date,” Bhamre told reporters.

The Union minister was addressing a press conference during his visit to the National Cadet Corps (NCC) Republic Day Camp at Delhi Cantonment. Read More…
