After the dastardly terror attack in Pulwama, the country has come together and help has been pouring in from all quarters. Team India opener Shikhar Dhawan has now stepped forward and announced that he will be donating money to the families of the 40 CRPF paramilitary troopers who were killed in a terror attack and asked the users to do the same.

"This is the least we can do. Jis se jitna ban pade utna zaroor karein. Jai Hind #standwithforces #pulwama", Dhawan posted with the video.

Former Indian opener, Virender Sehwag too came forward to bear the educational expenses of children of all the CRPF jawans in the terrorist attack in Pulwama.
