Gloominess has gripped the Pratapgarh area after the deadbody of the only son of a family havildar Shambhu Satmura was arrived. He became martyred during the India-Pakistan border in Jammu Nov 23rd. Tripura BSF (107 battalion) jawan, Satmura, 34, was patrolling along the border in the Jamia Wali Gali area of Poonch district when a mine, laid by the Pakistani army on a slippery slope, exploded, killing him on the spot. Satmura joined the BSF in 2007 and is survived by his father Lt. Shibcharan Satmura (65) mother Beena Satmura (62) elder sister Sima, younger sister Mousumi and wife Shipra Satmura, whom he married four years ago.

Seeing the quizzical looks on the faces of some media persons, Beena said: "The peer sahib was deeply affectionate towards my husband and had appeared in a dream to him and asked him to set up his mazar on the pedestal. We pray to him also."
