Puttur, April 1, 2018: A young soldier Zubair M hailing from Neranki in Bajattur village of Kadaba taluk who made his home district as well as state proud by being a part of the CRPF team that valiantly fought against the Lashkar-e-Taiba militants who were in hiding in a building at Srinagar in February, was given a rousing reception by people of his hometown when he arrived there on April 1, Sunday.
Local youth celebrated the occasion by taking out Zubair in a procession in a car.
Zubair is the second son of Samoon Beary and Aminamma couple. Zubair had his education at the Government Higher Primary School at Haleneranki and Sri Ramakunjeshwara High School. He later completed his PUC and BBM courses at St Philomena College.
The CRPF team of which Zubair was part of, was successful in striking down the militants who were hiding in a building in Srinagar a matter of a few hours. It may be recalled here that two Lashker-e-Taiba(LeT) militants were killed by security forces in Srinagar’s Karan Nagar in February after a gunfight of nearly 30 hours that had started after a failed attack bid on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp in Kashmir.
