The body of CRPF Sub-Inspector Nirod Sarma, who was killed in a terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir, arrived at his home in Nalbari district of Assam on Thursday. The mortal remains of the brave officer reached the Guwahati airport late evening and was received by Assam Parliamentary Affairs Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary, Chief Minister's Media Adviser Hrishikesh Goswami and senior officials of the CRPF.

Patowary, Goswami and CRPF officials carried the casket of Sarma and kept it at the airport for people to pay tributes. Then it was transported to his village in Nalbari district, where his last rites will be performed with full military honour.

Meanwhile, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal announced a compensation of Rs 20 lakh to the family of Sarma. Along with Sarma, Sonowal also offered his condolences to the other four CRPF personnel killed in the attack. Two terrorists, believed to be from Jaish-e-Mohammed group, struck in a busy road in Anantnag district of South Kashmir Wednesday killing five CRPF personnel and injuring three others.
