A marriage became a grand ceremony in Gwalior last month and more than it being a grand event, it was a special occasion. Bride Aarti was standing beside her groom and her face wore a blissful smile.

She got married on April 30.

A few men had come together to collect funds for Aarti's marriage. These men were friends with her brother who was an Assistant Commandant CRPF.

Rakesh Kumar Chaurasiya, Aarti's brother was 27 when he was gunned down in action in September 2009. He was leading a dangerous operation against Naxals in Sukma's Dandkarnaya forest.

As time passed, Rakesh faded into oblivion. But, he was not forgotten by his batchmates, the class of 38th Batch of Directly Appointed Gazetted Officers (DAGO).

After Rakesh was killed by the Moists, eight batchmates held on to a promise - not to forget Rakesh's sacrifice for the country.

Rakesh and these eight others had trained together in Gurugram's Kadapur in 2006.

These batchmates received Aarti's wedding card and they all decided to come together and fill in for Rakesh.

The batchmates collected a sum of Rs 5 lakh for Aarti's marriage to gift her a memorable wedding ceremony as Rakesh would have planned for her.

Rakesh's family had three brothers and four sisters. Suresh, one of the three brothers when learnt about the loving gesture said, "It was an emotional moment for us. Bhaiya's friends who are in CRPF never let us miss him. They have always been there for us."

His crew was one of five selected to target the Sorpe dam, and had to fly along its length at as low an altitude as possible and drop the bomb in the centre. And although Mr Johnson’s aircrew did not destroy their target, the Germans had to empty the dam to repair it, causing major disruption to the war effort.

It's always an emotional moment to witness these surprise homecomings. Check out this solider surprise his little sister during cheerleading practice.

"We first denied the contribution as our father insisted that blessings and presence are enough but bhaiya's friends convinced our father that it was a token of their love," Suresh added.

While the 120 batchmates are posted across the country now, eight men from the batch made it a point to attend the wedding in Gwalior.

Amongst them is CRPF's SC Vikas who is now on deputation to the NSG Manesar as Squadron Commander.

Speaking to India Today he said, "I can't describe the feeling when we were at the venue. I suddenly felt we had done something really good. It was a very proud and emotional moment."

Rakesh was not there but his brothers in arms, his batchmates saw the wedding through.

Another batchmate Yashwant DC speaking over the phone said, "When we found out about the wedding, there was a consensus. Rakesh was our batchmate. Aarti is our sister too and we decided to attend her wedding for Rakesh and the family."

Apart from being rewarded with several gallantry medals posthumously, Rakesh also earned a few brothers in the force.
