Mr Khattar along with Health Minister Anil Vij, who represents Ambala Cantonment assembly constituency, reached Corporal Gursewak's native Garnala village this morning. He expressed his condolence to the bereaved family.
The Chief Minister assured the martyr's father Sucha Singh that a job would be provided to any one member of the family. He also said that a memorial would be set up.
Mr Khattar said that Haryana and the entire country were proud of the "supreme sacrifice" by 25-year-old Corporal Gursewak.
He noted that the martyr came from a family which has a tradition of making contribution to the defence forces as his elder brother Hardeep Singh is in the Army while father Sucha Singh too is an ex-serviceman.
Mr Khattar assured Corporal Gursewak's father that the entire country was with them in this hour of grief.
The martyr had married in November last year.
When reporters asked the Chief Minister about Pathankot terror incident, he said that India was all for peace, "but there are some elements who are against peace initiatives we make and they keep fomenting trouble".
When asked if India should stop having talks with Pakistan in the wake of Pathankot incident, Mr Khattar said that that it was for the Centre to take a call on the matter. At the same time, he added, Pathankot incident was a serious one and cannot be ignored.
