The nation lost over 40 bravehearts last month, when a JeM suicide bomber rammed explosives-laden car into a CRPF bus in
Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir. People haven't forgotten that terrorist attack, nor will they ever. Post Pulwama, people from across the world are coming together to wipe tears of the family members of the martyred jawans.
The country was painted red last month with blood, and now when the festival of colours is here, the CRPF has decided that there will be no 'official celebrations' of Holi this year in the force, to pay respect to the jawans martyred in Pulwama. CRPF Director General (DG) RR Bhatnagar, said this during an event to mark the 80th raising day of the force in Gurgaon.
Reportedly, the DG also said that in order to better equip the troops during a combat, they are obtaining advanced weapons and gadgets that include Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), light bullet proof jackets, rifles, ground penetrating radars and signal jammers gunshot locators.
In fact, while paying tribute to the personnel who lost their lives, the CRPF chief also said that the force is creating a 'mobile app' to provide help to the families of martyred jawans.
