Chandigarh [India], Mar 2 (ANI): The Punjab cabinet on Saturday approved Rs 10,000 per month pension for the bereaved parents of CRPF constable Kulwinder Singh who lost his life in last month's Pulwama terror attack.
Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh had met Kulwinder's family at their village in Anandpur Sahib last month and promised full support from the state government.
During his visit to the house of Darshan Singh and his wife in Rauli village, Captain Amarinder announced a special monthly pension of Rs 10,000 to them (either or surviving parents) since they had no other children and the deceased was unmarried.
The chief minister had then said the agenda note for the pension would be presented by the Department of Defence Services Welfare at the next cabinet meeting. (ANI)
