New Delhi, Feb 16 (UNI) Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan will be donating Rs five lakh each to the families of the 40 CRPF jawans, who were martyred in the Pulwama terror attack.

Mr Bachchan's spokesperson confirmed the news and said in a statement, "Yes, Mr Bachchan will be giving Rs 5 lakh to each of the 40 martyrs families and is currently finding out the correct process to do so."

The actor, who was invited as a special guest at a Virat Kohli's Foundation's event on Saturday, immediately decided to cancel his visit as a form of reverence.

At least 40 CRPF personnel were martyred in a fidayeen attack at Awantipora in south Kashmir district of Pulwama on Srinagar-Jammu national highway on Thursday afternoon.

Terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) has claimed responsibility for the attack.
