In what comes as plausible, the Mandya office of the Life Insurance Company (LIC) has transferred the insurance amount to the nominee declared by the martyred Guru. The family has received over Rs 3 lakh.
Mandya: Even as the grieving family members of the Mandya brave-heart H Guru are yet to come to terms with the tragedy of losing their loved one in the Pulwama terror attack, LIC or the Life Insurance Company has transferred the insurance amount to the brave-heart's nominee, that too without bothering the mourning members for documents.
The LIC branch located in Mandya has transferred Rs 3,82,199 to CRPF jawan Guru's nominee as soon as the news of his death came to the fore. The branch didn't ask for the death certificate, as per standard procedure, while transferring the insurance amount.
The standard procedure involves the nominee to produce the death certificate, medical certificate to establish the cause of death and also the police FIR if it is a case of unnatural death.
The insurance company has been receiving appreciation ever since news of their humanitarian act was circulated.
Guru who hailed from Mandya had joined the paramilitary force about seven or eight years ago. He had been deployed in Jharkhand before being posted to Kashmir. CRPF jawan Guru had come to Mandya for leave and resumed duty on February 10. He had spoken to his mother at around noon on that fateful day. Guru's wife had been busy with work and hence was unable to speak to him that afternoon. She was informed about his death later that evening.
Guru and his wife, Kalavathy had been married for about six months. He was the only member in his family who had a steady income. One of his younger brothers works as a contract labourer while the other serves as a home guard. Guru had become a role model to many in his locality and had encouraged many to join the armed forces.
