Nitish Kumar condoles the death of CRPF jawan in terrorist attack

The 25-year-old martyr belonged from Piro village in Bihar.

A CRPF officer pays floral tribute to CRPF Jawan Mohammad Mujahid Khan during a wreath-laying ceremony, at CRPF Headquarters in Srinagar on Tuesday. He said that people of entire Bihar were standing firmly behind the family.

A gunfight had broken out between security forces and terrorists on February 12, 2018, after their attempt to strike a CRPF camp in Jammu and Kashmir's Srinagar was foiled. However the family returned the cheque immediately. "He died serving the nation, fighting terrorists and the Bihar government is comparing his supreme sacrifice with that of desi-liquor victims by offer Rs 5 lakhs", added Imtiyaz. "What will we do with the money?" His family members and friends have demanded the construction of some memorial for his fond remembrance.

Expressing his grief, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said he was saddened by Khan's death and pledged to provide all support to the family of the slain soldier.

The family members were upset that no senior leader, official or minister turned up for the funeral.

The Opposition targeted the government over none of the state or central ministers paying last respect to the martyr saying it was disrespectful to him. One of Mujahid's friend said that there were no officials except CRPF personnel when the Bravehearts body reached Patna airport from Srinagar.
