In a very filmy twist, an army man, thought to have died nearly 7 years ago due to an car accident, re-appeared before his family in Alwar, Rajasthan, as a heartening surprise for everyone.

Dharmveer Yadav went missing on 27 November, 2009, in hilly Dehradun after a terrible car accident. The forces decided he had passed away after intense searches, and started providing a pension to the family from 2012.

However, as fate would have it, Yadav faced another minor accident with a motorbike nearly a week ago in Haridwar, which miraculously brought back his memory. With the Rs. 500 that the motorcyclist gave him, Yadav then caught a bus back to Behror, his hometown.

Initially, Dharmveer’s father did not recognize him at the door. “After second or third knock, I realised that I was not dreaming and rushed to the door. I went numb after seeing my son who for us was dead. I could not even utter a word. My elder son and his wife also came and brought Dharmveer and me into the room. No one could believe that he had returned,” Kailash, also an ex-serviceman told DNA.

Alwar district Soldier Welfare Officer RP Yadav said he informed about Dharmveer’s return to his army unit. The unit will decide on what further steps need to be taken. Dharmveer says after the first accident, he was helped by locals, but he remembers nothing.

Yadav’s whole family, including his wife and two daughters are on cloud 9 after their father returned home after such a long period of time. “It is a filmy story which I and my family have lived,” the elated father told DNA.
