Guwahati, March 14, 2019:
After Assam’s martyr son Moneswar Basumatary made the ultimate sacrifice, his bravery has been hailed in the aftermath of his martyrdom. People from all walks of life have paid their respects to Basumatary who died in the line of duty when a Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bombing ended the lives of 49 CRPF jawans on this very date (14) last month in February.
To pay tribute to the fallen warrior, the CRPF on Thursday organized a tribute ceremony for Assam’s martyred son Moneswar Basumatary at his residence today in Tamulpur, Baksa district. CRPF head constable Moneswar Basumtary hails from remote Assam village Kolbari.
They started their rituals with ‘Bathou Arazorey’ (a local custom) and garland was offered by his family and well-wishers. CRPF North East Shillong headquarter IG Prakash D along with other high-ranked officials of the outfit attended the ceremony and offered their tribute to the brave martyr along with all the ceremonial rules of Army.
Basumatary’s wife Sanmati, daughter Didwmsri, son Dhananjoy, as well as other family members, could be seen holding back their tears during the tribute ceremony. In the tribute ceremony, CRPF offered tribute to all the brave sons of our nation who lost their lives during the dastardly Pulwama attack. IG Prakash D made a commitment to the families to help them in every situation while addressing the media. Basumatary’s daughter Diwnsri expressed her gratitude to the CRPF and the Assam Tourism department for her new appointment.
