He shared the news on twitter and it read, "T 3193-hat as said and thought, was fulfilled today; Given the protector of the country what had to be given; Do not say satisfaction, If we were to become an example, we could be cheerful.
"It took a while to get the names and addresses of those that lost their lives, but our efforts were fruitful, even when we had given the intention, and sought advice or indication of how I could help them he wrote on his blog.
A suicide terror attack was carried out on a CRPF convoy on 14 February 2019 in Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir.
