This picture of a girl crying inconsolably after her father was martyred in a terror attack has shaken the nation.
Assistant sub-inspector Abdul Rashid was shot at by suspected militants in south Kashmir's Anantnag district on Monday and died of his injuries at the hospital.
The Jammu and Kashmir Police reached out , posting a message for Zohra, Rashid's daughter.
The DIG of Police South Kashmir posted on Facebook:
My Dear Zohra,
Your tears have shaken many hearts.The sacrifice made by your father will always be remembered. You are too young to understand as to why this happened.
People responsible for such violence who attack the lawful symbol of the state and society are indeed insane and enemy of humanity.Your father like all of us represented Jammu Kashmir police force- a hallmark of valour and sacrifice.
Many of our police families have suffered and undergone irreparable trauma defending the common good for the society.All those faces and stories indeed create a rich history making us proud. We cannot forget our heroes,our dear ones with whom we lived and worked all these years.All these families are part of a great journey that JKP has undertaken serving the society.
Remember we all are one family at this critical phase. Every drop of your tear sears our heart.May almighty give us the strength to go ahead with our mission of rendering services for the betterment of the society.The vow that we have taken when we donned the uniform stands supreme. Let our sprit and commitment become the harbinger for change,let it be the message of peace and harmony for the fellow citizens.We will always cherish the memory of ASI Abdul Rashid as a true policeman who sacrificed his life in the line of the duty. RIP
With loads of blessings
All ranks and officers of JKP
