Body of Army officer, who went missing in Jodhpur reservoir, found


Jaipur, Jan 12 | The body of Captain Ankit Gupta of the Army Para Commandos (Special Forces), who went missing in the waters of a reservoir in Jodhpur during an exercise, was finally traced on Tuesday on the sixth day of a massive search by around 200 personnel from all three services.

Gupta had jumped from a helicopter into the Takhat Sagar during an exercise six days ago and then went missing. Army experts, since then, were searching for him in the reservoir which was 51 feet deep.

The Army had called its divers and commandos from across the country to trace his body. After a five day intensive search, the team finally found his body stuck between stones in the depths of the reservoir, after an anchor got stuck in his dress.

Exercises of Para Commandos take place throughout the year. As a part of this exercise, the team from 10 Para Commandos had to jump in the water from a helicopter, and then, move on a boat to attack the “enemy”.

On Thursday, 4 commandos, including the Captain, jumped into the water. Three commandos reached the boat, but Gupta did not emerge. His fellow commandos jumped into water to search for him but could not find him and then reported the incident to their headquarters. The rescue operation was subsequently launched.

Gupta was married in November last year.
