Sepoy Naiman Kujur, 30
Chainpur, Gumla district, Jharkhand
On Saturday, Sepoy Naiman Kujur, 30, had told wife Beena Tigga over phone that she should take care of their child and not worry about him. A day later, he was killed in the terror attack at Uri.
“Nobody should find oneself in the situation I am in. I feel the government should take strong action against terrorists, Pakistan, whoever is responsible,” Beena said. She added she was ready to become a soldier herself. “If they (terrorists) come before me, I will kill them,” she said.
Beena, who married Naiman in 2013, now faces the task of bringing up their son Abhinav, barely three. The couple had shifted from their home in Chainpur in Jharkhand’s Gumla district to a rented house in Ranchi a few months ago to ensure proper schooling for Abhinav. “How will I bring up my son?” Beena said.
Naiman’s body arrived at Ranchi airport on Monday evening. Beena, who had held herself together through the day, fell ill after seeing the body and was treated at the Army hospital.
Shalini, a family friend, said Naiman last came home in July and stayed till mid-August.
