The army today paid tributes to the two jawans killed in an encounter with militants yesterday in Kulgam district of south Kashmir.
“Homage was paid to the gallant soldiers, Late Lance Naik Bhandoriya Gopal Sinh Munimsinh and Sepoy Raghubeer Singh, at Badami Bagh Cantonment here,” a defence spokesman said.
Tributes were also paid by officials from civil administration and other security agencies that included the Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Inspector General of Police and Joint Director Intelligence Bureau.
The soldiers, who laid down their lives during the operation, showed raw courage to approach a house where the terrorists were confirmed to be hiding, he said.
“Lance Naik Bhandoriya Gopal Sinh Munimsinh and Sepoy Raghubeer Singh epitomised just that form of selfless courage as they were the leading buddy pair of the team that launched an operation in Frisal area of Kulgam yesterday during which four terrorists were eliminated.
“The duo embraced martyrdom while fighting the terrorists who opened indiscriminate fire as the security forces closed in on the suspect house,” the spokesman said.
