Shimla: A Himachal-based couple has chosen to “adopt” the 12-year-old daughter of an Army jawan, who was executed by Pakistan in the Poonch area of Jammu and Kashmir on May 1. They have offered to bear the child’s cost from school till marriage, to guarantee a decent future for her.
As a tribute to Naib Subedar Paramjit Singh’s relinquish, Kullu deputy commissioner Yunus Khan and his wife Anjum Ara, an IPS officer, have chosen to deal with his daughter, Khushdeep Kaur.
“Khushdeep will continue to stay with her family. We will be paying for all her expenses and meeting her from time to time to know about her problems and solve them. If she wants to become an IAS or IPS officer or choose some other career, we are there to help,” said Ara, SP of Solan district.
Yunus said it is difficult to assuage the pain of the martyr’s family, but they are trying to share their grief. “By ensuring good education to his daughter, we are doing our duty as responsible citizens,” he said. Yunus said that it is up to Khushdeep whether she wants to continue studying at her village school or join some other school. “We would be there for her throughout her life to help her in making decisions,” he added.
The couple was not in a mindset to uncover it, but rather when this reporter asked constantly, it admitted to the move.
Anjum Ara is the second Muslim IPS officer in India, who is posted at Solan as a Superintendent of Police.
At the point when the whole nation is in outrage on account of the savage demonstration of Pakistan, this couple has set a case to persuade the general population to help the families of the martyrs.
The family of the saint has just two acres and lives in a semi-kutcha house in their fields. The saint’s eldest daughter is an understudy of Class 10 while twins Khushdeep and Sahildeep are studying in Class 7 in a nearby school.
