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.
