Nirbhaya‘s younger brother is flying high — literally. He has joined a private airline after completing his commercial pilot training and his parents cannot stop thanking Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi for making it possible.
Badrinath Singh told IANS that the Congress leader helped the grief-stricken family in “every way possible he could” after his 23-year-old daughter was brutally gang raped on December 16, 2012 that led to her death 13 days later.
“My son (he refused to name him) is now a pilot. He completed his training recently. He has joined IndiGo Airlines and is already flying planes. And it is true it was possible because of Rahul Gandhi,” said Singh, who works at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here.
He said his son after completing his Class 12 got admitted to the Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi, a government-founded autonomous institute in Rae Bareli — the Lok Sabha constituency of Rahul Gandhi’s mother and Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
“Rahul Gandhi made it possible. He looked after us after the incident,” the father said, referring to the December 16 night when his daughter was brutally gang-raped.
