After marriage Neeta and Reeta migrated to Canada and London respectively while Kamal had finished studying at Sherwood College Nainital. Later Kamal joined the Indian Army.
Col. Bakshi expired 17 years ago and Shanta Bakshi expired 4 years ago.
Reeta has been in search of her brother Kamal since the past 44 years. She has decided that she will keep up her search as long as she lives.
Capt. Kamal Bakshi has been missing since the 1971 war between India and Pakistan.
Reeta says that in 1971 Capt. Kamal Bakshi had come down here on leave to attend Reeta's marriage but due to the war his leave was cancelled and he was called back on duty. That was the last that they had seen him.
Col. Bakshi had written many letters to the President, Prime Minster and to high military officials in this matter but in vain. Reeta is not alone in her mission of finding her lost brother who is jailed in Pakistan. She has been assured by military personnel and other sources that he is in some jail in Pakistan. Ajitabh Bachchan (brother of Superstar Amitabh Bachchan) and Kabir Bedi are also assisting her in the search.
On 22nd June this year Jasveer Uppal, an advocate from London will be filing a case against the government of India in the Supereme Court in this regard.
With the change of government Reeta had hopes of success but gradually this faith is also beginning to fade away. She expressed her feeling against the government of India by saying that America made sure to get back the remains of it's soldiers from Vietnam and India is not at all concerned about its brave soldiers.
We wish Reeta best of luck in succeeding to find her brother, Capt. Kamal Bakshi.
