Kapil Sharma’s Cop Brother Stood Guard During the Pathankot Attack
Ashok Sharma says Punjab police are not as lethargic as his brother portrays them to be on Comedy Nights With Kapil.
Comedian Kapil Sharma’s brother stood guard outside the Pathankot air base on the fateful night of 2 January, according to a report by The Times of India.
A Head Constable with the Gurdaspur police, Ashok Sharma (35), along with 80 others, stood outside the air base.
Terrorists dressed in Army fatigues attacked a key Indian Air Force base on the intermediate night of 1-2 January.

When the gun battle was on, many of us would notice men in Army fatigues inside the base and it was difficult to tell whether they were terrorists or Indian soldiers, given that both were wearing the same attire. It was chaotic. All of us were under stress.
Seven Indian security personnel were killed along with the six terrorists who entered the air base.
The NIA is investigating the case of the terrorist attack. Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has agreed that there were gaps in not only the defence, but the civil security as well.
However, Ashok Sharma has pointed out that the Punjab police are not as lethargic as his brother portrays them to be on his show, Comedy Nights With Kapil.
