Tilak Raj was among the 40 troopers killed when a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden vehicle into a CRPF convoy .
Raj's brother Baldev Singh said his martyred brother has now got justice and would rest in peace.
He said the nation was desperately looking for a befitting reply to the attack.
The martyred trooper, who had joined the CRPF in April 2007, was native of Jandro village in Jawali area of Kangra district, some 300 km from the state capital.
Tilak Raj, 31, had resumed duty just a few days before the terror attack after availing leave. He leaves behind his parents, wife and two sons.
His elder son is two years old while the younger one is 15-days-old.
