Bikash had landed up at a shelter home for children in Gujarat after he accidentally got separated from his parents and landed in Gujarat where he was recovered by railway police and later handed to Child Welfare Committee authorities and sent to a children home.
And after a BJP leader from Gujarat named Pradipsinh Vaghela shared visuals of the young boy with Assam Finance, Health and PWD Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and the latter taking up the issue with Syed Zarir Hussain, Bikash was reunited with his family during the live show and subsequently brought back to Assam by News Editor Luit Neil Don who had gone to Ahmedabad to cover Bikash’s story.
