Akshay Kumar does it again. We are all aware of his humanitarian streak and continuing the pratha, Akshay Kumar, recently, donated Rs 9 lakh each to the families of the 12 CRPF personnel who were killed in a recent Maoist ambush in Chhattisgarh. In total, Akshay donated a whopping amount of Rs 1 crores and eight lakhs.
It is reported that soon after the harrowing incident; Akshay Kumar approached the Union Home Ministry with a request to obtain the bank account numbers of the family members of the jawans who were killed in the ambush as he wanted to make a donation to them. Now, that’s why we love you Mr. Khiladi. Later, the Ministry accepted the actor’s request and directed the Central Reserve Police Force to share the bonafide bank account numbers of the families.
In an interview to a leading daily, the paramilitary force was quoted as saying, “Kumar’s gesture exhibits his patriotism and devotion towards the country in general and CRPF in particular.” For the uninitiated, 12 personnel were killed in a deadly ambush in Chhattisgarh’s worst Maoist-hit district of Sukma on March 11 when they were out on a patrol.Soon after, social media was abuzz with Akshay’s kind gesture and all his fans lauded his efforts. As a matter of fact, the actor had demanded a plan to develop an online portal so that any citizen can donate money to the jawans or officers who get killed in the line of duty.
Well, we do the same, Akshay!
