He said he had to join the RFMF the hard way, but was happy that he successfully completed the course.

When asked if at one time he had wanted to withdraw he answered: “Never”.

His wife, 27-year-old Sharon Prasad, also confirmed that it was her husband’s dream was to join the RFMF.

“I’m really happy that he has achieved his dream,” she said.

Mrs Prasad said she knew that her husband would pass all their tests.
