Jammu, June 20:

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman  has visited the residence of  Rifleman  Aurangzeb in  Mendhar Poonch  on Wednesday and assured the family of the slain soldier that the whole nation stands by them.

She flew to  Mendhar this morning and trekked all the way to the home of Aurangzeb who was abducted, tortured and killed by militants on June 14 .

His killing became one of the reasons for the  Centre’s decision to  make BJP to withdraw the support to the PDP-led coalition government on Tuesday, thus paving way for Governor’s rule on Wednesday .
