The body of CISF Head Constable Dinankar Mukhopadhyay, who was killed in a suspected Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada district on Thursday, was brought here on Friday for cremation by a special flight.
The flower bedecked coffin containing Mukhopadhyay's body was placed on a podium at the NSC Bose International Airport on arrival.
Officials from the Indian Air Force, where Mukhopadhyay worked earlier, also gave him a floral tribute.
Family members and neighbours of the slain jawan broke down in tears as his body was brought to the Ichhlabad residence.
He is survived by wife and a son.
Four civilians and the CISF jawan were killed when suspected Naxals blew up a bus with an improvised explosive device (IED), the third such attack in 15 days in the poll-bound state.
