Wow, maybe Ekta Kapoor was on to something.

This is Dharamveer Singh, who was a jawan with the 66 Armoured Regiment in Dehradun. He had gone missing back in 2009, and was declared dead three years later.

Singh's brother Ram Niwas told The Times Of India: "My brother was driving a military vehicle on Chakrata road in Dehradun when he and two other jawans met with an accident. Their vehicle overturned on a divider. None of the bodies was found."

While on duty, Singh met with an accident in which he lost his memory, and not remembering his own name, wandered around Haridwar. Now, here's the more interesting part: He regained his memory seven years later, after meeting with another accident.


Singh explained that after the first accident, he couldn't remember his name nor what had happened to him. "All he remembers is that he was begging on the streets of Haridwar last week, when he was hit by a bike. The rider rushed him to a hospital, where Dharamveer, after regaining consciousness, realised that he had recovered his memory," said Niwas to TOI.

The Times Of India further reported that Singh returned home last week, and his father, retired subedar Kailash Yadav, saw his "dead" son standing before him. It was then that Singh recounted the last seven years to his wife, two daughters, his brother, and father.

Singh has been admitted to a hospital in Jaipur for follow-up treatment.
