Family members of seven martyrs belonging to Punjab, including an officer, have been given compassionate appointments in various state government departments under the honour and gratuity scheme.

According to government officials, the beneficiaries include Wg Cdr Mandeep Singh Dhillion’s widow, who in accordance with her qualifications was recommended for a Group-A post.

While commanding a helicopter unit in northeast in July 2017, Wg Cdr Dhillion from Patiala had carried out five sorties and evacuated 169 civilians marooned in flood-hit areas of Arunachal Pradesh.

While carrying out the sixth sortie, his helicopter crashed and he died. He was also awarded the Eastern Army Commander’s Commendation for his action.

The remaining six died in the line of duty while deployed in Jammu and Kashmir. These include Lance Naik Sandeep Singh of the Parachute Regiment who hails from Gurdaspur. He was killed during an operation in J&K’s Kupwara district in September 2018, in which five terrorists were eliminated. He is also reported to have taken part in the 2016 surgical strikes on terrorist camps in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

The brothers of Sepoy Mandeep Singh of Sikh Regiment and Sepoy Mandeep Singh of Engineers hailing from Sangrur and Tarn Taran, respectively, who lost their lives in January 2018, are being given jobs.

The other beneficiaries include widows of Sepoy Mandeep Singh of Sikh Light Infantry from Gurdaspur, Gunner Sukhdyal of Artillery from Pathankot and Sepoy Jaspreet Singh of Sikh Light Infantry from Moga. They were martyred in 2017.

Jobs being provided to them include Group-B and Group-C posts, including recruitment as constables in the Punjab Police.
