A CRPF soldier, who saved lives of several CRPF personnel injured in the Pulwama attack on February 14, is being awarded with Director General’s Disc and Commendation certificate.

Iqbal Singh of 49Bn CRPF is getting the honour not just for his bravado during the terrorist attack but also for feeding a paralytic child in Srinagar. Singh was deployed for law and order duty at Nawakadal, Downtown, Srinagar when one day he noticed a paralytic kid who was hungry. He gave his food to the boy but on realising that he was unable to eat by himself, Singh fed the kid with his hands.
