Bhubaneswar: Aska MP Pramila Bisoyi has urged Defence Minister Rajnath Singh to expedite the search operation for missing IAF aircraft An-32 and bring back flight Lieutenant Sunit Mohanty, a resident of her parliamentary constituency who was onboard the aircraft.
In a letter to Singh, Bisyoi said, “Sunit Mohanty belongs to my constituency, Aska of district Ganjam, Odisha. His parents are quite disturbed and with folded hands apprised me of the situation. It was very painful to see their plights and hence requesting you to expedite the search operation of the missing IAF AN-32 flight and bring back Mr Mohanty along with other members who were on board.”
Sunit is a resident of Baliapalli in Kabisuryanagar in Ganjam district. His father Surendranath Mohanty is a retired Air Force officer.
Notably, Sunit is among the 13 Indian Air Force (IAF) personnel who went missing after IAF’s AN-32 aircraft went off the radar in Arunachal Pradesh on June 3.
