Vivek Oberoi’s company Karrm Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd. has donated 25 flats to the families of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) martyrs in Thane, Maharashtra. According to reports, Vivek’s organisation has written a letter to the CRPF fraternity announcing the flats to the kin of the martyrs who lost their lives for the nation in different operations. Reportedly, 4 flats have already been given to the families.
The organisation has released a list of the families that have been allotted the flat, and the rest of the list will be released soon. Earlier, another celebrity Akshay Kumar has donated Rs 1.08 crore to the families of twelve slain jawans of the CRPF.

Gautam Gambhir also donated his prize money after being declared man of the match in Indian Premier League (IPL), to the kin of security personnel who lost their lives in the Sukma Naxal attack. The cricketer’s media manager confirmed that the Gautam Gambhir Foundation will take care of the entire educational expenses of the children of the soldiers killed.
The Jawans belonged to 219 battalion and they lost their lives in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district after a group of the Naxals’ armed militia ambushed a road opening party (ROP) in the area’s Bheji village on 11 March. The Centre has assured action against the perpetrators of the ‘cold-blooded murder’ in Sukma.
Akshay Kumar had earlier launched Bharat Ke Veer app to help families of martyrs. “This website has been made exactly in two and a half months. About three months, this idea came to my mind, while watching a documentary film on terrorists, which showed how terror leaders financially support the families of the terrorist who carry out terror acts,” Akshay had said at the launch when asked about the idea behind the app.
