On Tuesday, we had reported that Gautam Gambhir has promised to take care of Zohra’s education for a lifetime. Zohra is the 5-year-old daughter of ASI Abdul Rasheed of the J&K police who attained martyrdom in an encounter with terrorists on August 18.

Photographs of little Zohra sobbing inconsolably over her father’s coffin during his wreath laying ceremony went viral on social media. The photos were so touching and heartbreaking that Gambhir could not stop himself from extending a helping hand to the girl who had just lost her father.

Have a look at what the noble man tweeted:



This is not the first time that the cricketer has come forward in support of armed forces and their families. In April, he had pledged that the Gautam Gambhir Foundation will sponsor the education of children of 25 CRPF soldier who were martyred in an attack by Naxalites in Sukma, Chhatisgarh.

There have been other times when Gambhir has stood strong in the support of security forces of India. He strongly condemned the attack on CRPF soldiers by some local Kashmiri youth in Budgam a few months ago. And now he has assured Zohra that he will help her all through life to live up to her dreams by supporting her education. Dr. SP Vaid, DGP J&K Police, has personally thanked Gautam Gambhir for his gesture of sharing Zohra’s pain.
