On April 23, a Railway Police Force sub-inspector lost the battle for life after six days. Sub Inspector Dev Raj was attacked along with a colleague by a pistol-borne terrorist a week before at Kakapora Pulwama.
The RPF SI was being treated at SMHS after receiving critical injuries in the attack near a Dhaba in Kakapora Pulwama along with his colleague Surinder Singh who had died on spot. The attack was carried out from a lush green crop field when the soldiers were sitting just outside a Dhaba. KRF strongly condemns the attack and prays for their eternal journey. These attacks are highly reprehensible leading to growth in terrorism in the valley.
