Sister joins Chhattisgarh Police, ties rakhi to the gun her martyred brother used while in duty, wants to join Danteshwari fighters to avenge brother’s death

"Naxals are cowards. I want to join Danteshwari fighters and take revenge for my brother's death," Constable Kavita Kaushal of Chhattisgarh Police said.

On Rakshabandhan, Constable Kavita Kaushal of Chhattisgarh Police tied a rakhi to her brother’s gun which he used when in service and is now allotted to her. Her brother Assistant Constable Rakesh Kaushal lost his life in the October 2018 ghastly naxal attack in Aranpur, Chhattisgarh, which claimed lives of two security personnel and a Doordarshan cameraperson.

Constable Kavita Kaushal said that she was given employment in the Chhattisgarh Police in place of her brother and she requested the department to allot her the same gun that he used when he was in service. “Naxals are cowards. I want to join Danteshwari fighters and take revenge for my brother’s death,” she said.

Danteshwari Fighters are an all women commando unit deployed in Naxal infested Bastar and Dantewada of Chhattisgarh. The team consists of 30 women, of which four are surrendered Naxals.
