Indian Premier League franchise Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have donated INR five lakh each to families of five CRPF soldiers martyred in the Pulwama terror attack in February.

The cheques were given to kin of five CRPF jawans hailing from Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, who lost their lives in the deadly terror attack on CRPF convoy in Pulwama, J&K last month, which left 40 personnel from the force dead.

Cheques were distributed among family members of Jaimal Singh, Sukhjinder Singh, Maninder Singh, Kulwinder Singh and Tilak Raj.

Kings XI captain Ravichandran Ashwin, DIG CRPF V K Kaundal were present at the event.

Earlier, IPL did away with the opening ceremony this year instead opting to donate the money allocated for the event to the families of Pulwama terror attack martyrs.
