    Orissa Floods: Jawan Drowns After Saving 60 People


    A jawan and his colleagues were successful in rescuing 60 people from the roof top of a house in flood-hit Orissa, but while returning he fell off the relief boat and drowned, official sources said here today.


    Aswini Kanungo (28), member of a rescue team of the Orissa Disaster Rapid Action Force, had gone to Mathura village of Jajpur district to rescue marooned people and helped 60 people including women and children to come down from a roof top to their relief boat on Friday.

    While returning, Kanungo fell off the boat and despite being a trained swimmer remained missing for the past two days. His body was recovered today, sources said.

    Married only three months ago, Kanungo's wife would get Rs 9.5 lakh and a government job, Minister for Revenue and Disaster Management S N Patra said.

    That's from the ministry. The Army may provide 9 Lakhs as his death is within the scope of a Jawan's duties. Apart form that, the insurance company may give 33 Lakhs.

    A Def Pro will have to help us with that though because I am not 100% sure about the compensation. He may belong to the state govt, which means the compensation will be even lesser.

    Condolences to the family.

    He did his duty.

    So many of them die while doing their duty.

    They are not remembered by the Nation.

    It is only when negative things that are blown up by the terrorists and the media, and that too in generalities, then those are remembered and I get PMs!!
