Tsunami-hit IAF officer's daughter still untraced

According to a statement from the Defence Ministry’s public relations wing here, all efforts to find the girl had failed so far.

When the tsunami hit the Air Force Station in Car Nicobar on the ill-fated day, Sgt Ravi Shankar was being evacuated along with his family and others.

The service truck in which they were travelling was hit by the sea wave with high density resulting in its submerging and loss of lives. Though Sgt Ravi Shankar and his wife were evacuated safely, his one year old son died and Apurva has been missing since then.
It was reported that some tsunami victims had seen the girl in a relief camp run by Pandit Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. However, further enquiries revealed no clues about the girl’s existence within the various relief camps.

Assurance

Since then Pt Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had assured Sergeant Ravi Shankar, who is attached to 15 FBSU Port Blair, to trace his daughter if she is alive in any of the relief camps run by him.
Any clues in this regard may be forwarded to Sgt Ravi Shankar, Q. No 227/2/4, Village & PO. Chota Govindpur, Dist. Jamshedpur, Jharkhand.
