Head Constable Ramashankar Yadav, killed by SIMI activists for escaping from jail in Bhopal, was a doting father who was excited over forthcoming marriage of his daughter but the tragedy has now pushed the family into profound grief. “Ramashankar was happy and excited over his 24-year-old daughter Sonia’s wedding scheduled for December 9,” his nephew Vijay Shanker Yadav told PTI.

Ramashankar, who had earlier suffered a heart attack, was busy making arrangement for the wedding, he said. “My uncle was busy making arrangements for his daughter’s marriage. But as fate had it, we got the news of his killing by SIMI men this morning,” Vijay said.

Ramashankar’s two sons — Shambhunath (36) and Prabhunath (32) — are in Army, who are currently posted at Guwahati and Hissar, respectively. While Prabhunath has reached Bhopal, Shambhunath is scheduled to arrive late tonight, he said.

“My uncle’s body is at morgue after postmortem. His mortal remains will be consigned to flames tomorrow,” he added. A pall of gloom has descended on Yadav family after the incident. “We will sit and talk whether to go ahead with the wedding or postpone it,” Vijay added.

            How did 8 accused embled in one cell at the same time. This is against SoP of the jail. lt;br/gt;2: How come they were out of cell. Jail manual says, they must be in lockup and keys should be submitted to Jail office before sunset.lt;br/gt;3 : How come only one policeman was attacked and no else tried to stop them when attacked… More by them. lt;br/gt;4: How is that all accused were moving around together. Even stupidest of criminals don't do that .And that too when they are unarmed. lt;br/gt;5: Why kill them when they had no weapons except Spoons. lt;br/gt;6: All of the accused were well dressed wearing sports shoes and even watches. "Cool Terrorists". Isn't it? lt;br/gt;7: Don't they have CCTV installed…lt;br/gt;8: Why is media calling "undertrails" as terrorists? Correct phrase is "terror accused", until case against them is proved.
