Popular American DJ Marshmello was in India to collaborate with some Indian music composers. He also performed at VH1 Supersonic Festival that took place in Pune. While performing, Marshmello observed 2 minute silence to honour the CRPF personnel who were slain in the dastardly terror attack that took place in Pulwama district of Jammu & Kashmir. The Indian flag was projected in the background while DJ Marshmella said, “Two-minutes silence for the Indian soldiers who lost their lives in a terrorist attack."
On Thursday, February 14th, 40 CRPF soldiers were killed when a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist rammed a car loaded with 60 kg of RDX into a security convoy carrying around two thousand soldiers. It is touted to be one of the deadliest terrorist attack on an army in decades.

"So many artistes performed at the festival, but it was only Marshmello, who remembered the jawans. I respect him even more now," a fan told IANS.
