Lieutenant Governor of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, Manoj Sinha visited the family of Mudassir Ahmed in Uri on Saturday and expressed his condolences to the relatives. While handing over a cheque of five lakh rupees as remuneration to his father, he said that the whole country is proud of your son. “The Jammu and Kashmir government is always with you,” Sinha said.

While talking to the media, Mudassir Ahmed’s grief-stricken father Maqsood Ahmed Sheikh expressed his emotions before the media. He said that he is proud of his son who sacrificed his life for the Tirangaa. “Because of his sacrifice, a thousand other lives were saved. We are very proud of him today. He is not going to return back, but we are proud of him. I have lost my son on the battlefield, I am proud of him,” he said.

“My son has sacrificed his life for the nation. A lion like him will never be reborn,” Sheikh expressed his emotions for his brave-heart son.
