Pulwama Terror attack: Rajnath Singh carries a coffin of martyred CRPF jawan
New Delhi : Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Jammu and Kashmir’s Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh carried a coffin of a martyred CRPF jawan on their shoulders.
Both Singh and J&K Governor governor Satya Pal Malik stood in silence after the coffin was placed near a truck that will take the bodies to the Srinagar airport.
Rajnath Singh and J&K Governor Satya Pal later held a meeting with the government officials in Srinagar. The Union Home Minister has assured an appropriate action to avenge the deaths of our soldiers.
“I have requested state governments to extend the maximum help they can lend to the bereaved families. I have given all the necessary directions to the officers. The morale has not taken a hit. We’ll see this fight against terrorism to the end,” said the Home Minister.
Singh further said, “It has been decided that the civilian movement will be stopped for sometime when a large convoy of security forces passes through an area. Civilians will face a little difficulty, we apologise for it.”
Meanwhile, in the wake of the deadly attack, Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria has been called to Delhi for consultations. Bisaria will leave tonight for the national capital, news agency ANI reported.
In a terror attack, at least 40 CRPF personnel had been martyred after a deadly IED blast ripped through the vehicles they were sitting.
