CRPF jawan Jaimal Singh, a resident of Ghalauti village in Dharamkot sub-division of Moga distirct, was the driver of the bus that was blown up in the Pulwama attack. A suicide bomber had rammed his explosive-laden SUV into the bus on the Srinagar-Jammu highway in Awantipora area of J&K on Thursday. As many as 42 CRPF jawans were killed and dozens of others injured in the incident. Four jawans from Punjab have lost their lives.
