Nahan: Rukhsana Kausar, who shot into limelight by killing a Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist, would be honored in the town on 28th December. As per as the information the parents of Rukhsana would also accompany her in the function being held by certain organizations of the Nahan town in Himachal. Rukhsana, 21, had become a youth icon when she killed Lashkar-e-Toiba militant Abu Osama in a daredevil act on September 27. Rukhsana had also faced terrorist attack on his native house after killing the millitants. Later, she and her family were shifted from her village and settled in a safe house in Rajouri, in a bid to keep the ultras at bay. This is the first tour of the Rukhsana in this hilly state. She had stated that youths should be imparted training in fighting terror. Along with this brave girl of the country the family of Late Sargent Dev Raj Thakur of Nahan would also be honored who had caught Nathu Ram Goddasde soon after the father of the nation Mahatama Gandhi was assassinated. After the Nahan, Rukhsana would also be honored in the state capital on 29th December. It is worthwhile to mention here that the bravery of this man was never recognized by the state.
