BHUBANESWAR: The mortal remains of Border Security Force (BSF) Constable Kishore Rout, who died in a plane crash in Delhi on Tuesday, was brought to the Capital  City on Wednesday evening.

Floral tributes were paid by senior BSF officials to the deceased jawan from Kendrapara. The grief-stricken relatives of Rout were waiting at the airport since afternoon for the coffin which on arrival was kept in a specially erected pedestal.

The special BSF flight which flew Rout’s remains from Patna was delayed by about an hour.

The BSF Headquarters in the Capital City was supposed to pay Guard of Honour to the martyr. However, since the tricolour had been lowered at BSF headquarters at sunset, only a wreath laying ceremony was conducted and floral tributes were paid to Rout, BSF IG BS Sandhu said.

Kendrapara MP Baijayant Panda, an Additional Secretary-ranked officer of the State Government, Commissionerate of Police officials laid wreath on the coffin. Panda consoled the family of Rout who is survived by his wife and two sons.

DIG Intelligence, BSF JC Nayak said Rout worked in 123 Battalion at Farakka in Malda of West Bengal for over eight years. He was a polite and diligent Jawan who had a five-year stint in the Air Wing of BSF, Nayak said.

The body of Rout was sent to his village Deulatarapatana in Kendrapara district. He will be cremated with full State honours on Thursday.
