"It is a matter of pride that martyr Abdul Hamid belonged to Uttar Pradesh who displayed exemplary courage for which he was awarded the highest award posthumously and his wife was a brave woman," Adityanath said in his message.

The last rites of Rasoolan Bibi will be performed on Saturday. She is survived by four sons and a daughter, family sources said.
