Punish perpetrators, appeals State martyr�s daughter

By The Assam Tribune

KALABARI/GUWAHATI, Feb 15 - �The perpetrators must be punished for killing my father, our jawans, even if it means carrying out surgical strikes across the border,� demanded the daughter of CRPF Head Constable Maneswar Basumatari, who was martyred in Thursday�s terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir.

Basumatari, the head constable, CRPF 98 Battalion, was among the over 45 soldiers killed in the Pulwama attack. He is survived by his wife (Sunmati), daughter (Didmaswari), and a son.

�We want justice. Give a befitting reply to the cowards responsible for the Pulwama attack,� said an inconsolable Didmaswari today.

Talking to reporters at the family�s residence in Kalabari village in Baksa district, she also demanded that the government should look after the family now.

Basumatari had recently visited his home, said the slain head constable�s wife with tears running down her face. She was unable to talk further.

After the attack, there were rumours circulating on social media that three more soldiers from Assam had been killed in the attack.

The CRPF jawans rumoured to have been killed in the blast took to Facebook on Friday to refute the rumours.

One of the soldiers, Mizing Basumatary of Udalguri district said in a Facebook post, �This is fake news. I am doing fine and nothing has happened to me. Please don�t share the fake post.�

CRPF jawan Pabitra Barman, a native of Bongaigaon, said, �Hi friends... I am fully safe & sound. I�m deployed in other district of Kashmir, which is far away from Pulwama where the mischief happened. Jai Hind.�

Family of the third CRPF jawan, Ananta Saikia of Nagaon district�s Gorubandha, also said that he was safe. His sister, Purnima, said: �By God�s grace, Ananta is safe. He called us today. He was on a bus which was ahead of the convoy of 78 vehicles, carrying 2,547 CRPF jawans, that was attacked.� � PTI

Our Jorabat Correspondent adds: The family members of CRPF constable Kanak Kalita (38), who was injured in the Pulwama terror attack on Thursday, has appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to punish the terrorists responsible in the attack.

Kalita, who hails from Maloibari village, situated at the outskirts of Guwahati city, joined the CRPF in 2003. He belonged to 92nd Battalion of CRPF.

The family members initially received the news of Kalita being martyred in the attack, but was later informed by Kalita himself through video call of him being alive.

The villagers, along with the whole Dimoria region, was tense over the fake news of Kalita being martyred. The people took to streets demanding strong action against the militant group.

Bhumidhar Kalita, father of Kanak Kalita, along with his family members also expressed their heartfelt condolences to the martyrs and also prayed to the Prime Minister to ensure that the militants are punished.

�I also urge the government to take a strong stand to finish terrorism, as the loss of our brave soldiers leave the family members in great pain and also towards an uncertain life,� he added.
