The Congress-led Kamal Nath government has announced a aid of Rs 1 crore to the martyr’s family. Along with the financial aid the government would also give one of the family members a job and an accommodation.
Martyr CRPF jawan Ashwini Kumar Kachi was a resident of Jabalpur.
At least 45 CRPF troopers were killed and some 20 others injured on Thursday when a van packed with explosives reportedly rammed into a CRPF bus on the Srinagar-Jammu highway in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama distric. In the deadliest attack ever on security forces in Jammu and Kashmir, a Jaish suicide bomber rammed a vehicle carrying over 100 kg of explosives into a CRPF convoy of 70 vehicles in Pulwama district.
The attack took place when the CRPF was moving 2,547 CRPF jawans/officers in two convoys moving close to each other from Jammu to South Kashmir in 78 vehicles including, buses, armoured vehicles and jeeps.
The number of casualties may rise as several soldiers are still battling for life.
