CRPF MAN FEEDS DISTRESSED J&K BOY
SRINAGAR: A video clip of a CRPF jawan, who was part of the convoy that was targeted in the Pulwama attack, has won plaudits for feeding a boy who appeared differently-abled in Srinagar’s old city. Head constable Iqbal Singh was on law and order duty at Safakadal on Monday when he shared his meal with the boy. A 31-second video of Singh feeding the boy has gone viral on social media.
“Singh has done a very commendable work. He was deployed at Safakadal when the boy, whose hands were stricken with paralysis, signalled him for food, a senior official said. Singh walked towards the boy and immediately started feeding him. Some locals shot the video. We don’t even know who shot it,” said CRPF PRO Sanjay Sharma.
Singh was driving one of the 78 vehicles on February 14 when the fifth in their convoy was hit by a suicide attack killing 40 troops.
