Relative and friends of one of Paramjit Singh, one of the two soldiers who were killed in Poonch, Jammu & Kashmir, Monday, were trying to hide the news from his wife, Paramjit Kaur. The body is expected to reach Vainpoin village in Tarn Taran district Tuesday.

Paramjit Singh was to come home on leave on April 28. He, however, had decided to postpone his visit to the second week of May as one of his friends, a fe had to take leave urgently. Paramjit Kaur was told by relatives Monday evening that Paramjit Singh was “seriously injured” in a terrorist attack.

Satnam Singh, a relative said, “We have not informed Paramjit about her husband’s death yet. We have been trying to keep it from her as long as possible before the arrival of the body. People have been coming to our house as soon as they hear of this. So, it is becoming becoming difficult for us to hide it from her.”

Satnam Singh, “He had told his family that he would reach home on May 8. He had last come home around five months ago.” Parents of Paramjit Singh had gone to visit a relative in Amritsar when the news reached them. His father Udham Singh is a small farmer and two brothers are employed with the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee.

Paramjit Singh has three children: Elder daughter, Simarjeet Kaur, is a Class X student, and twins Khushdeep Kaur and Sahildeep Singh. Satnam Singh added, “One of his relatives was in Army and he urged Paramjit to join the force.”

“We haven’t been told officially. But we have come to know that his body was mutilated. We want the government to give a befitting reply for this attack,” he said.

          Beheading is an Islamic thing. It's a war between Islam and kafirs, rather than India and stan, one must understand this.

                Anger has become numb. Fellings have no meaning. Our govt cars only for VIPs Jawans are not VIPs. VIPS like MPs can terrorise airlien staff nothign will happne. Take out Lal Battis they will find other ways like siren to distinguish VIPs from we commoners. Modi may say he is Pratham Sevak and there are no VIPs, but either he is nto aware what is the ground reality or he is joking. GAIKWAD is clasic example hat Modi is nto pratham vk but Sevak to Previledged. Unless Gaikwads are nto arrested and prosecuted common man should be scared that they have no rights in India

                        This is a sad day Sikhs should not over react to this incident and play in the hands of indra goverment. This is the Same counary who DENIED them justice for 1984 Sikh genocide, and gave thEm WIDOW colony in the heart of independent india Delhi. A gift for all their sacrifices. The weak people of this country are only good at giving their girls to produce more TAIMUR proudly. As long india keep promoting face of HI on Indian currency and not the real hero BAGHAT SINGH this nation will slowly parish. STOP PROMOTING WEAK BRITISH AGENT HI TO KIDS.
