A national bravery hero from Maharashtra, who was honoured by Prime Minister Modi last year, was kidnapped along with his sibling from their home here, police said on Saturday.

As per the complaint registered late Friday night by their mother Sundarbai R. Bhil, her two minor sons, Nilesh and Ganpat, went missing and were kidnapped by some unknown persons, said the on-duty officer of Muktainagar Police Station.

Nilesh Bhil, 12, received the National Bravery Award in January 2016 for saving a village boy from drowning in a water tank the previous year.

Top police officers at the local and regional levels are monitoring the investigations involving the national hero and his seven-year old younger brother.

The motive behind the suspected kidnapping is not yet clear.
