Shell script for read line from text file

My need:


Read line from the text file by shell script and append few text before and after the line.

Script:

#!/bin/bash
file="/root/scource.txt"
while IFS= read -r line
do
                echo -e "        <User>"
                echo -e "            <Path>$line</Path>"
                echo -e "        </User>"
done <"$file"


cat source.txt

/home/kumar
/home/moulee
/home/admin

Output:
<User>
  <Path>/home/kumar</Path>
</User>
<User>
  <Path>/home/moulee</Path>
</User>
<User>
  <Path>/home/admin </Path>
</User>
