Bihar DM Inayat Khan Adopts Daughters Of Martyred CRPF Jawans

As the country grapples with the loss of  40 CRPF personnel a great gesture was shown by a female IAS officer, Inayat Khan, in Bihar. Inayat Khan who is the District Magistrate of Bihar’s Sheikhpura district has set an example by adopting the daughters of two of the martyred soldiers in the recent Pulwama attack, according to a report by Indian Express.  At least 40 soldiers died in the terrorist attack on 14 February.

Khan’s touching move is inspiring at a time like this. Sources state that she will fund the girls’ education while taking care of other expenses throughout their lives. She will be adopting one girl child each of CRPF personnel Ratan Kumar Thakur and Sanjay Kunar Sinha.

“I want to appeal to the people to contribute as much as you can so that we can stand by their families at a time when they need our support.”

The Bihar cadre IAS officer has donated her two days salary to the families of the martyred jawans. And facilitated opening of bank account in Sheikhpura for people to donate money to help those in need.
