"HC Driver Iqbal Singh of 49 Bn Srinagar Sector CRPF feeds a paralysed Kashmiri kid in Nawakadal area of Srinagar. In the end, asks him 'do you need water?' Valour and compassion are two sides of the same coin."
The trooper's parental gesture has been appreciated across the religious, political and social divide.
Kashyap Kadagattur, Dy. SP, CRPF, said on Twitter, “Head Constable Driver of @crpf_srinagar feeds his lunch to a specially abled child in Nawakadal area of downtown Srinagar. He also shared his cup of tea on the same afternoon. IG Srinagar CRPF met him a short while ago and complimented him. CRPF and JKP are brothers in arms.”
The video that has gone viral on social media offers a glimpse of everyday hardships of the soldiers at the world's highest battlefield.
The video started trending after Nagaland MLA Mmhonlumo Kikon shared it on his official Twitter handle, tagging Mahindra along with others.
