Pulwama attack: Amitabh Bachchan to donate Rs 5 lakh to each martyr’s family

Senior Bollywood Superstar Amitabh Bachchan who is always a step ahead to help the needy has shown his generosity once again. The ‘BigB’ has decided to donate Rs 5 lakh each to the families of the CRPF jawans who passed away in the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

His spokesperson confirmed the news, saying: “Yes, Mr. Bachchan will be giving Rs 5 lakh to each of the martyr’s families and is currently finding out the correct process to do so.”

In the worst ever terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir since militancy erupted in 1989, a Jaish-e-Mohammad suicide bomber on Thursday rammed his vehicle packed with explosives into a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) bus on the Jammu-Srinagar highway in Pulwama district, killing over 40 troopers on the spot. The toll rose to 49 on Friday as several injured succumbed.
