Chennai, April 24 (IANS) As their daughter puts up a stoic face in Chhattisgarh, the family of Asha Paul Menon - wife of abducted Sukma district collector Alex Paul Menon - is spending sleepless nights here.
Asha is busy meeting ministers, senior officials and the media while praying for her husband's safe return. In Chennai, her family members are worried about the safety of Menon, who is asthmatic.
"We are all worried about his safety," T.K. Venugopal, Menon's father-in-law, told IANS.
