We want surgical strike in Pakistan to avenge Pulwama attack, says family of martyred CRPF jawan
- Trust Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he said that the sacrifice of CRPF jawans will not go in vain, Vaqeel's wife said
- Ram Vaqeel's mortal remains will be brought to Mainpuri on Saturday morning
- His cremation will be attended by UP cabinet minister Satyadev Pachaur on behalf of the state govt
The wife of slain CRPF jawan in Vinayakpur area of the Mainpuri district has demanded that the armed forces should carry out surgical strikes in Pakistan in order to teach the neighbouring country a lesson for carrying out a cowardly attack in Pulwama on Thursday.
Speaking to India Today, Gita Devi, wife of CRPF jawan Ram Vaqeel who got martyred in the terror attack said, "I trust Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he said that the sacrifice of CRPF jawans will not go in vain. The government should instruct the armed forces to conduct a surgical strike again in Pakistan in order to teach the perpetrators a lesson."
"My husband had returned to Kashmir on Februrary 10 after spending a month-long vacation. I spoke to him around noon on Thursday, hours before the incident took place. He had promised to begin the construction of a house in Etawah. It's an unbearable loss for us and I have to take care of my three children on my own," added the slain jawan Ram Vaqeel's wife.
Shiv Kumar, Ram Vaqeel's nephew said, "We saw the news of my uncle's death on TV and later got the information from CRPF. After the attack on the World Trade Centre in the United States, their military carried out a massive crackdown against terrorism and since then no terror activity has taken place. We demand that the government should carry out similar operations so that terror outfits are given a befitting reply permanently."
Ram Vaqeel's younger brother, who is a police constable, said "We are proud that our brother has sacrificed his life for the nation. However, we demand that the government should conduct a massive surgical strike again in order to avenge the sacrifice of 40 jawans. We want the toughest action this time."
