‘Ravi Paul could have been alive, but we are proud of him’
Jammu, September 19: Unbearable Sadness is spread all over Sarwa village in Ramgarh sub-sector of Samba district, which lost one of its sons — Havildar Ravi Paul. Paul was martyred in the terror attack on the Uri army base on Sunday morning.
Havildar Ravi Paul of 10 Dogra Regiment was among the 17 men who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty. 30 men were injured in the attack.
Ravi Paul has two brothers, both of whom are in the Indian army as well. His brother Yash Paul told U4UVoice, “Ravi joined army when he was 20 years of age and had served the country for 23 years till now. Ravi is survived by wife Geeta Devi and two very young sons—Vansh (10) and Kaka (7).”
While speaking with the family members, it was also found that Ravi Paul’s unit had actually been transferred to Pathankot and his family had already moved to Pathankot. His belongings had also been moved there with the advance parties of the unit having left from Uri recently.
Ravi was part of a rear party and was to join his unit in a couple of days at Pathankot. “However, destiny had something else in store for us. We are proud of our brother,” an inconsolable Yash Paul told U4UVoice.
