I am Proud of my Husband's Sacrifice: Kavita Karkare

Mumbai, Jan 5: Breaking her silence over the Mumbai attacks on Monday, Kavita Karkare, wife of Maharashtra ATS chief Hemant Karkare who was killed fighting the terrorists, said she was proud of her husband's sacrifice.

"I feel proud of my husband's sacrifice but we have paid hard price for it. It is very painful because I am 50 plus and at this age I really needed my husband," she said.

Kavita, whose two daughters are abroad and her 17-year-old son is pursuing studies "quite independently", told a leading news that she regretted the decision of her husband to join the Anti-Terrorism Squad.

"I strongly regret that. When he took up the ATS job, I knew from his nature and uprightness that he will go in front and fight. It is a very risky job. That time, I used to tell him to apply for a UN job," she said.

Kavita said she was initially angry after the Mumabi terror attacks, "but now I think I am overcoming the anger. Because this anger and violence will not help to solve the problem. We should come together and do something constructive".

She said the ATS should have good weapons and good coordination to tackle such kind of terror attacks.

    A woman of courage I must say by reading her view from what she has said and going through it, hat's off to the poor widow at such an early age, does it matter to anyone? The poor women has finally come out after the truma of loosing a husband / father in the line of duty for the State & Mother India. Somehow the devil always has his way and it was our ATS Chief carrying out a very significant investigation in the Malegoan blast and the devil was a winner in nailing our dear ATS Chief, but, not the final winner as India will have another stronger ATS with the spirit of Late Karkare to bring the guilty and prove to the world that India means business. Mrs. Karkare be proud and face the world, your late husband has given a perfect example to the world that the Nation is first when you Serve the Country, God Bless you and the Nation is with you. G
