The Tughlak Road Police has started the search operation and what is troubling the police is the information that even though he was off the roster, why did he report to duty donning his uniform. According to the missing report lodged by his father, the 31-year-old SPG commando’s name is Rakesh Kumar and he has been residing with his family in a rented flat in Sector 8 of Dwarka area in Delhi.

According to initial investigation, Rakesh Kumar had reported to duty on September 1 and even met his colleagues deployed at Sonia Gandhi’s residence.

He left the premises around 11 am and did not carry his service revolver.

Since he was also not carrying his mobile phone, no contacts could be made with him afterward.

His family members have ruled out any enmity or personal feud with any one.

When he did not return home on September 2, Rakesh Kumar’s family members assumed that he must have gone to meet a friend and stayed at his home.

Still clueless about him, his family reported the matter to senior authorities posted at the 10 Janpath residence on September 3.
