Army veteran’s house vandalised in Mamata’s Bengal after he lit candles to show solidarity with Pulwama martyrs

An FIR has been lodged and investigation is currently underway.

According to a report of Times of India, an Army veteran’s home was vandalised in Haringhata Nadia, Kolkata after the veteran’s family lit candles to express solidarity with the martyred CRPF soldiers in the terrorist attack in Pulwama. Warrant Officer (Retd.) Gour Shekhar Dey along with his family had lit three candles on Friday evening on the call of ex-servicemen’s association to pay tribute to the slain CRPF soldiers and had posted the pictures on social media.

Dey, who has also served for two years in the Kargil, has lodged an FIR in the police station. Dey’s son Anurava said they had moved in the house in 2016 after the retirement of his father and the family never faced any trouble in the neighbourhood. “I was awake till 1.30am. I had checked the doors and windows and everything seemed fine. The vandals seem to have struck after that. It was not the work of mischievous children as the tar marks on the walls could only have been made by somebody quite tall. his is quite unnerving. Are there people around us who are unpatriotic or was there some other motive behind this?” said Arunava.

“So it came as a shock when we found my father’s plaque defaced with tar. There were also markings on the walls. It seems that some people were unhappy with us lighting the candles,” said Arunava who was shocked by the incident.

The investigation has been initiated in the case. “We are investigating the matter. Nothing more can be said at this point,” said a senior police officer.
