 CM announces rupees four lakh each to Mosul victims

Chief Minister Shri Jai Ram Thakur here today announced Rs. four lakh each to the family of four Himachalis who were killed at Mosul in Iraq in a gruesome and cowardly act of terrorism by ISIS militants. These Himachalis along with 35 other Indians were missing since 2014 and despite sincere efforts by the Central Government they could not be located and brought back safely. Out of four Himachalis three hailed from Kangra district and one was from Mandi district.

Expressing his deep condolences with the bereaved families, Shri Jai Ram Thakur personally talked to the family members of the victims and said that the State Government was with them at the hour of distress. He spoke to Shri Raman elder brother of late Shri Aman of Pasu village near Dharamshala, district Kangra, Shri Pardesi Ram father of late Shri Inderjeet Singh of Lanj in Kangra district, Shri Dilawar Singh father of late Shri Sandeep Kumar of Fatehpur of Kangra district and Shri Beli Ram father of late Shri Hem Raj of Gram Panchayat Bayla in district Mandi.  

Shri Jai Ram Thakur said that the tragedy was not only unfortunate but also an inhumane act of brutality which should be condemned by one and all.  He said that Union Government made concerted efforts to locate and bring them back alive but destiny was otherwise. He said that all these were bread earners of their families who had gone abroad to earn their livelihood for betterment of their families.
