Shimla: Roshan Lal, a Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) jawan was getting ready for an early flight back home in Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh when a powerful blast in Kabul on Friday cruelly cut short his life.
Roshan Lal was in his room when the terror attack took place. Nine Indians were killed in the blast.
He and another ITBP trooper were in their rooms when the blast took place. Roshan Lal could not get out and was killed. The other jawan managed to save his own life somehow.
Taliban bombers equipped with suicide vests and automatic rifles attacked a hotel and a guesthouse run by Indians in heavily fortified Kabul, killing at least 15 people, including nine Indians.
Roshan Lal, who had been in Kabul for a year and was waiting to go home on leave was posted on general duty at an Indian consulate outside Kabul. He is survived by his wife.
