Dead peacekeepers

First, I would like to express my deep shock and condolence to the bereaved families. There are no words to say to lessen their pain. Only those who have lost their dear ones can feel the pain. Second, It is surprising that our officers boarded an uncertified plane and took off from an irregular airport. Why they had to board that plane? Why they failed to board a regular aircraft?

I personally knew Major Rawnak who left behind his wife and a six-year old kid among others. He was our senior cadet when we were in Comilla Cadet College. He is also elder brother of one of our batch mates. What a tragedy for them? A hearty reunion turned into a good-bye from far away without a single word spoken.
