Babul Santra was a CRPF jawan from the Howrah district in West Bengal. He was part of the CRPF convoy that was attacked in Pulwama of Jammu and Kashmir on the 14th of February by a Pakistan backed JeM terrorist.
The Prime Minister had also invited the kins of slain BJP workers in West Bengal for the swearing-in ceremony as a mark of respect. The kins of over 50 BJP workers who had lost their lives due to the political violence in the state over the last few years have been invited.
However, Mamata Banerjee has decided not to attend the swearing-in ceremony after having heard the kins of slain BJP workers were also invited for the ceremony. She denies that there were political murders in the state.
