I WONDER : FROM CIVIL ADMINISTRATION SIDE JUST A GP B SUB DIVISIONAL OFFICER WAS PRESENT.

PATNA: Body of 23-year-old Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Flight Lieutenant Manu Akhouri, son of Col (retd) Sanjay Akhouri, of Danapur sub-area Cantonment, was consigned to flames at Peepapul ghat at Danapur with full military honour on Saturday.

His grandmother, mother Meera Akhouri, uncle Ratan Akhouri, elder brother C H Akhouri, an engineer at Pune, sister Pragya Akhouri and many other relati-ves broke down literally on arrival of the body.
