Srinagar: Almost a week after 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed in a deadly suicide bomb attack in south Kashmir’s Pulwama, a martyr’s wife has shared the last video which her husband sent.
Pulwama martyr Sukhjinder Singh (Head Constable, 76 Battalion) from Tarn Taran in Punjab had sent a video to his wife from the CRPF bus which was attacked by a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) suicide bomber. He had sent the video to his wife before the attack but his wife saw it on Friday (February 22).
The video, shot during the journey, shows the national highway through which the CRPF convoy was passing before it was disrupted by the deadly attack. Sukhjinder also gave a glimpse of his face and the bus.
This was the last video he sent to his wife before being killed in the deadliest attack in three decades of Kashmir’s insurgency.
He is survived by his wife, a seven-month-old son, and parents. He had joined the CRPF in 2003 when he was just 19 years old; he promoted to the post of Head Constable around eight months ago.
Since the dastardly attack on February 14, security forces in the Valley have been on overdrive and have already neutralised several top Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists.
The fresh attack has triggered a conflict between New Delhi and Islamabad, as both parties continue to oppose each other’s stance in connection to the Pulwama terror attack.
While India has decided to corner its neighbours for harbouring terrorism, Pakistan maintains that it had no role in the attack and that it was all due to the situation in Kashmir.
Meanwhile, top leaders from India including Prime Minister Narendra Modi have been critical of Pakistan and even revoked Most Favoured Nation given to Pakistan. Other diplomatic moves are also being considered to isolate Pakistan in the internationally.
