Once more Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has come to the aid of a family stricken by the death of a jawan in Jammu and Kashmir border.
On November 22, suspected Pakistani troops killed three soldiers and mutilated one of the bodies near the border.
The news of Akshay’s donation Rs 9 lakhs to the family has not come from the actor who prefers not to talk about such things publicly.
Chandra Singh, father of martyred jawan Prabhu Singh confirmed the news appreciating the actor’s gesture: “Akshayji had called and he transferred money to my account, he said I should use this for the education of his sisters and daughter. He extended more support if and when there is a need.”
The actor managed to get the contact details of the 25-year-old Rifleman Prabhu Singh of Rajasthan, whose body was found mutilated, and spoke to his father an ex-army jawan himself, who is now paralyzed and after an emotional chat he transferred Rs 9 lakhs into his account.
Rifleman Prabhu Singh left behind his father, wife, three sisters and a six-month-old daughter.
We salute you Akshay, you are a true hero!
