Noida- A government school in Himachal Pradesh state will be named after martyred CRPF Jawan. The state cabinet chaired by chief minister Jai Ram Thakur has decided to name a government school in Himachal Pradesh state after martyred Central Reserve Police Force Jawan. The school which will be re-named is in the native village of 30 years old CRPF Jawan Tilak Raj who was killed in the Pulwama Attack last month. The CRPF Jawan was hailed from Dhewa village of Kangra district in Himachal Pradesh state.
The official from HP government said, “the cabinet has also decided to grant an amount equal to the minimum of pay band plus grade pay and fixed DA of 144 per cent to those PTAs/Para Teachers who have completed three years of service on contract basis as on October 1, 2018”. The increased amount will be payable from April 1, 2019, he added. The cabinet also gave its consent to rename it as Shahid Tilak Raj Government High School, Dhewa as a mark of respect to the martyr, the official also added.
Pulwama attack, which took place on February 12, also considered as one of the deadliest terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir, in which 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed. Tilak Raj was also one of them; he was injured in the February 14 attack on a CRPF convoy in south Kashmir and succumbed to his injuries in the army hospital. At least 40 CRPF personnel were killed in Pulwama district when a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into the bus full of CRPF Jawan. This is one of the worst terror strikes in the state since the Uri attack in 2016.
