State Minister Shivpal Yadav and Congress leaders Sheila Dikshit and Shri Prakash Jaiswal visited Nitin’s family at the village Tuesday to pay homage to the martyr. Shivpal announced that Rs 20 lakh would be given by the state government to the martyr’s family, and a memorial would also be built in the village.
Nitin’s body was consigned to the flames in the presence of officials from his battalion as well as from the district administration and police later in the day.
Nitin, a bachelor, is survived by his parents Balveer Singh and Usha Devi and elder brother Sachin. Nitin, who joined the BSF in 2013, was sent to Baramulla a month back from West Bengal. He last spoke to his father on Saturday, said his uncle Mukud Yadav. He added that a BSF official had called the family late Sunday night to inform them about Nitin’s death.
Meanwhile, injured BSF jawan Parvinder’s elder brother Harender said, “Parvinder has suffered a bullet injury in the right leg. I spoke to him around yesterday noon after the surgery at the army hospital in Kashmir. “Parvinder said he was feeling better. No one from the police or district administration, or any political leader has visited us yet,” he said.
Parvinder (24), who belongs to Phugana village in Muzaffarnagar, had joined the BSF in 2012 and got married to Jyoti in April last year. They have a four-month-old daughter.
