Menon's family expresses happiness at his release








Chennai/Mysore, May 3 (IANS) Relief and happiness brimmed over among family members of Chhattisgarh's Sukma district collector Alex Paul Menon Thursday after his release by Maoists.

Menon's father A. Varadhas told IANS in Chennai that he was immensely happy at the release of his son after 12 days in captivity, but he had not spoken to him yet.

'I heel happy. I am yet to speak to my son. He just got released and he will be having his official duties first. We are all really happy,' Varadhas said.

He thanked the Chhattisgarh and central governments for his safe release.

Varadhas said he had offered special prayers to god for his son's release. 'And our special prayers to god will be fulfilled, but I can't share it with you,' an emotional Varadhas added.

Menon, an IAS officer from Tamil Nadu, was freed by Maoists at Tarmetla in Chhattisgarh Thursday evening. He was abducted from a forested area in Bastar region in Chhattisgarh April 21.

Juliet Ruby, Menon's sister, speaking to IANS from Mysore, said they were all happy and were grateful to the central and state governments.

'We are discussing whether to go to Chennai or Chhattisgarh. It depends on my brother's plan, whether he is coming to Chennai or staying there. It also depends on his wife Asha's health. Earlier, she was advised by doctors not to travel,' she said.

Asha is pregnant.

Juliet said that ever since Menon was kidnapped on April 21, the family had lost their sleep. 'We have spent our time discussing and talking,' she said.
