Last year, 45 CRPF personnel were martyred in the terrorist attack in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir. Manoj Kumar Behera was also one of those martyrs. Now Martyr Manoj’s family is going through difficulties these days.
Actually, Manoj’s wife kept the money received from the government in his account. She left her home. In such situation, the martyr’s parents are facing heavy financial difficulties.
According to India Today report, Jitendra Behra father of Manoj Behra said, ” Our daughter in law, Elilate Behera left us after receiving all the financial support from the government. She received more than Rs 51 lakhs from Central and State governments.“
The central government promised a government job to the martyr’s family but Elilate behra (Wife of Manoj Behra) also refused to accept the government job offer by the government saying that she will work only after three years because she has to take care of her young daughter.
While talking to the media, the father of martyr Manoj said that after the death of his son, the situation of his family has become worse. Because his daughter-in-law has left the house. Manoj’s wife got the financial help of more than 51 lakh rupees from the Central and State Government.
The martyr’s father said that the financial assistance of Rs 25 lakh from the state government and Rs 30 lakh from the central government were provided. Although the government had also offered a government job to her daughter-in-law, but she refused the job, saying that the her child was young.
Jitendra Behra father of Manoj Behra said, “Our son was the only bread winner for us. After his death, our lives have become miserable. Government deposited all the money into our daughter in laws account. Now she tells us that we didn’t have any right over the money. I don’t know what to do and where to go for help.“
Martyr constable Manoj Kumar Behera was a resident of Ratanpur village of Cuttack district of Odisha. He alone was carrying the responsibility of the family.
Local villagers are in shock after this incident because they never imagined such kind of situation of martyr Manoj’s parents.
A villager said, ‘Manoj’s parents are living miserable life with no source of income.“
