Rahul visits slain security personnel's families in Dehradun

Press Trust of India  |  Dehradun 

on Saturday paid a visit to the homes of two Army majors killed in separate incidents in after the terror strike and one ASI, who was among the 40 security personnel killed in the suicide bombing of a CRPF convoy in the south town.

Immediately after a rally to kick-off the Congress's campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls in Uttarakhand, Gandhi rushed to meet the families of Chitresh Bisht, Vibhuti and CRPF ASI Mohan Lal Raturi, residents of Dehradun who were killed in last month, days after the terror strike.

Gandhi, who spent around 15-20 minutes at each of the places, commiserated with the slain security personnel's kin, saying he could plumb the depth of their grief as he himself had lost his father, former Rajiv Gandhi, to an act of terror.

Bisht had died while defusing an improvised (IED) along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Nowshera sector and Major Dhoundiyal had died in an encounter with terrorists in a few days after the attack on a CRPF convoy there, in which Raturi was among the 40 security personnel killed.
