Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who was visiting Jammu and Kashmir in the aftermath of Pulwama terror attack, shouldered a coffin of the martyred security personnel.
The visual must have come as a sight of soothe for families of the martyrs, who otherwise have to build their lives ahead with the massive loss that they have sustained.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh was also accompanied by Jammu and Kashmir top police officer Dilbagh Singh in shouldering the coffin today.
Minister Singh assured the country that the government will “undertake whatever it takes to avenge this terror act”.
“The nation will not forget the supreme sacrifice of our brave CRPF jawans. I have paid my last respects to the martyrs of Pulwama. The sacrifice will not go in vain,” Mr Singh said in Budgam.
After taking the coffin near a truck that will take the bodies to Srinagar airport, where a special aircraft will fly them out, Rajnath Singh stood in silence
beside other officials including Governor Satya Pal Malik, Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba, CRPF Director General RR Bhatnagar and Dilbagh Singh.
This was the worst terror attack to take place in Jammu and Kashmir since the start of the century.
