A state cabinet, headed by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan also took the decision to meet the expenses of education of 44-years-old CRPF jawan’s two children- 8-years-old daughter Anamika and 5-years-old son Amandeep.
Later, CM Vijayan told the source that necessary steps would be taken to make permanent, the temporary offered job to Vasanth’s wife Sheena, who is working as an assistant at Veterinary University.
A new house would be built for Vasant’s family, hailing from Wayanad district, he added.
The Kerala Chief Minister continued that “the government is sharing the grief over the killing of 40 CRPF personnel who had lost life in the terror attack in Pulwama. One of our brothers, hailing from Wayanad, also was among them.”
“We have decided to extend helping hand to his family. For that, the government will give Rs.25 lakh as financial assistance to them — Rs. 15 lakh to his wife and 10 lakh to his mother,” added CM Vijayan.
On February 14, around 40 CRPF jawans were killed in one of the deadly terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama attack when JeM (Jaish-e-Mohammad) suicide bomber crash into a vehicle, which was carrying more than 100 kg of explosives into security personnel’s bus in Pulwama district.
