Bangalore, Nov 30 (UNI) Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan and his Cabinet colleague, Home Minister K Balakrishnan, met the family members of the slain NSG Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan and offered condolence here today.
The Chief Minister arrived in the city to meet the family of the 7th Bihar Regiment Major who had been drafted to the NSG last year.
The Major was killed while leading his team against the terrorists at the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai.
The Major's father had earlier made it clear to the presspersons that he had decided not to meet any politicians who may come to convey condolence on the demises of his son.
''My son does not belong to just Kerala, He only fought for the nation,'' said the Kerala-born Mr Unnikrishnan.
He and his wife Ms Dhanalakshmi were in deep mourning after having lost their only child.
The family had also reportedly refused to answer a telephonic call from Union Defence Minister A K Anthony in the morning.
