Singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh has donated Rs300,000 (Dh15,419) to the wives of the CRPF troopers who died in the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
Dosanjh on Sunday shared a snap of his donation receipt to the CRPF Wives Welfare Association.
“Our soldiers protect the country and the citizens of the country. They have to live away from their loved ones, not knowing what the next day will bring,” he captioned the post.
“The families don’t know when will they see them next. But there was always a hope which is now gone for these families.”
The ‘Ikk Kudi’ singer urged his fans and followers to contribute their bit to help the martyrs’ families.
“We can’t take the sorrow away but can try to help a little by donating. It’s our time to do something to help the families of our shaheed jawans in this difficult time. We stand with the soldiers and their families,” he said.
Apart from Dosanjh, many celebrities have come forward to support the families of the deceased troopers.
Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan’s spokesperson confirmed that the ‘Agneepath’ actor will donate Rs500,000 each to the families of the 49 CRPF troopers who were killed in the terror attack on February 14.
