No ex-gratia yet for family

From Our Correspondent

TURA: A heart-breaking tragedy has engulfed the family of an innocent water carrier of the 121 Battalion of the BSF who lost their youngest son at the hands of a psychopathic tantrik but the grief is more so given that no ex-gratia has been announced by the force till date.

The family of the victim happen to fall in the lowest segment in the BSF hierarchy. His father is a part of the D Category – a water carrier of the force – who happens to be the poorest of the poor.

Sadly, no effort has been made to give any form of monetary gain to the family that has gone through so much even though the BSF claims to be giving their full support to the family of their own.
