The bodies of the soldiers killed in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama which were brought to Delhi and received by home minister Rajnath Singh are eventually reaching their respective hometowns.

Not only their families are embracing the slain soldier’s martyrdom but huge crowds are also gathering to pay respects to the soldiers amid emotional moments.

This is how people of India honoured the slain CRPF jawans across nation:

This was the scene in CRPF jawan Ramesh Yadav’s native village Tofapur in Varanasi, when his mortal remains arrived. 

As the mortal remains of our soldiers return home, thousands have gathered to pay their homage to our bravehearts.

Earlier on Friday, the entire nation paid its last respects to the bravehearts as PM Modi bowed down his head and walked around the 40 coffins with folded hands.

National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, Congress President Rahul Gandhi, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, the chiefs of the armed forces, Army, Air Force and Navy also paid their homage to the slain CRPF personnel.
