44 families of CRPF jawans couldn’t control their tears when “martyred soldiers wrapped” in tri-colour reached home. One among the victims was Rohitash Lamba, a 27-year-old who also lost his life in the Pulwama attack. He joined the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) when he was just 25 years old. He hails from Govindpura village in Amarsar area of Jaipur.
Rohitash got married just a year ago and his wife gave birth to a daughter who is now 2 months old. Unfortunately, our Jawan didn’t get a chance to meet his daughter even once.
Rohitash’s friend while paying tribute to him wrote “bowing down on the path of his duty, bowing down to the martyrdom of this true son of the dynasty … he had a good friendship with the people in his battalion… He was constantly encouraging the youth in the village.”
His neighbour also said that “I used to believe him as an elder brother, he always kept insisting on me to read. He himself was so disciplined to go to the army that no work of his daily life was missed. They will always be remembered.”
PM Modi pays tribute to Jawans!
“A grateful nation bows to the martyrs of Pulwama. A befitting reply will be given to the perpetrators of the heinous attack and their patrons. No force will succeed in disturbing peace, progress and stability of India. We salute you, brave sons of Mother India.
You lived for the nation and served the country with unparalleled valour. We stand in solidarity with the bereaved families,” PM Modi tweeted.
