Solider Sanjay Kumar Sinha’s family said he had left home for Kashmir only last week after a month-long vacation. The grieving family of Ratan Kumar Thakur said he had said he had promised to give them a call on that fateful day. “Ratan had told us that he would call by evening, soon after joining work in Srinagar. But we received a call from his superior instead, and it was to inform us about this terrible news,” said Niranjan Thakur, the CRPF constable’s father.
