Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on Friday consoled the family of H Guru, who was martyred in a terror attack at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir.

The chief minister instructed officials to speed up the process of compensation and directed them to verify the educational qualifications of Guru’s wife Kalavathy so that she can be provided a job by the government.

“I spoke to martyred #CRPF soldier H Guru’s family over phone and consoled them. Their grief is heart wrenching. We are with them. I have instructed the officials to speed up the process of compensation. #Pulwama,” Kumaraswamy tweeted.

Describing the massacre in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama as “heinous act of mindless cowardice”, the chief minister said he was deeply disturbed and pained at the loss of lives of the brave CRPF personnel.

“The government should act immediately and take steps to end the menace of terrorism from our soil forever,” he said in another tweet.
