The death of two CPRF personnel among 44 jawans in the Pulawama terror attack has shocked everyone. G Subramanian and C Sivachandran reportedly returned to their camps five days ago after spending about a month's leave in their home.
Subramanian, who belonged to Savalaperi, had joined CRPF in 2014 and was posted in Uttar Pradesh and in Chennai before being moved to Jammu and Kashmir, a family member said. He got married in 2017.
Sivachandran from Ariyalur district in the State was also among those killed. Sivachandran's brother-in-law V Arun said that he had left home only on February 9 to resume duty after a month's leave when he visited his village of Karugudi about 30 km from Ariyalur town. Chief Minister Palaniswami said he was grieved to learn that two of the 40 killed were from Tamilnadu.
