Will AN-32 meet fate like Malaysian airline MH-370, ask people in Port Blair

It has been six days and Sunita Verma is glued to her television set, in the hope that she gets some news of her son Raghuveer Verma.
Newly inducted into the Indian Air Force, airman Raghuveer is one of the 29 people who were onboard the ill-fated AN32 aircraft which went missing on Friday. Even as the Indian forces conduct their biggest ever search operation, family members of the missing people are hoping against all odds for the return of their loved ones.
In Port Blair, Raghuveer's family is in a state of shock.
The 22-year-old had just completed his training from Air Force Training college in Bengaluru and joined duty with a posting in Rajasthan's Barmer. He was coming to meet his family when the plane went missing.
Raghuveer reached Tambaram last week and to be ferried to Port Blair in the AN32.
"Papa, receive me from the airport at 11:30," were his last words to his father, Lakhichand Verma. Since then, it has been the longest wait for Verma family.
