Bengaluru: On Friday, Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy sympathised with the family of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel H Guru, who hailed from Mandya district, Karnataka. He was among those, who were killed in the Pulwama attack in Jammu and Kashmir.

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


 H Guru (33) from Mandya district, Karnataka, is, unfortunately, one of the CRPF jawans, who lost their lives in the terror attack at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday. Guru was married six months ago and was a member of the 82nd battalion of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).

 Speaking to reporters, Guru's wife, Kalavathi mourned as she never thought such a tragic incident would ever happen to her and she could not pick his call as he called her several times to talk to her before the tragic incident.
