Textiles minister Smriti Irani has sent Mahadevi, wife of Siachen braveheart Lance Naik Hanumanthappa Koppad, an offer letter for a job through Central Silk Board, according to member of Parliament in Rajya Sabha Rajeev Chandrasekhar.

In February last year, Hanumanthappa was miraculously found alive after having remained buried under 35 feet of snow for several days after an avalanche had struck his post at Siachen Glacier. He was admitted to the hospital after rescue but died one day later.

He is survived by his wife Mahadevi and three-year-old daughter Netra, who Mahadevi wants to make an “officer” so she can serve the country in the armed forces where her braveheart father lost his life.
