‘I will never get back my brother but we all want the government of India to avenge his death in the fight against Pakistani barbarians.’ were the words of the sister of a Tripura braveheart who lost his life along the India-Pakistan border in Jammu.
Tripura BSF (107 battalion) jawan, Satmura, 34, was patrolling along the border in the Jamia Wali Gali area of Poonch district when a mine laid by the Pakistani army on a slippery slope, exploded, killing him on the spot. Satmura joined the BSF in 2007 and is survived by his father Shibcharan, 65, mother Beena, 62, elder sister Sima, younger sister Mousumi and wife Shipra, whom he married four years ago.
Satmura was scheduled to come home on the last week of November. When he last spoke to his mother, he said his commandant had assured him of granting leave and he would return home for a few days.
The same evening, the commandant called and informed the family that Satmura had been killed in a mine blast. ‘I received the call and felt distraught but when I spoke to my elder brother’s close friends I was convinced that the worst had happened’, said his sister Mousumi, who has just completed her graduation.
