Army pays tributes to the braveheart

Srinagar, November 23

Rifleman Prabhu Singh would have celebrated his 25th birthday today and may have been gifted flowers. Instead a floral wreath was laid on his body today during a ceremony here to pay tributes to the fallen soldiers.

Three soldiers of 57 Rashtriya Rifles battalion, including Prabhu Singh, were killed in Pakistani action in the Machil sector in the frontier district of Kupwara on Tuesday. The body of one of the soldiers was mutilated.

The Army today paid rich tributes to the three soldiers Gunner Manoj Kumar Kushwah, Rifleman Prabhu Singh and Rifleman Shashank Kumar Singh at the Army's Srinagar-based headquarters of 15 Corps.

Prabu Singh, a resident of Khirjankhas village in Jodhpur district of Rajasthan, is survived by his wife.

Kushwah, a resident of Daddupur village in Gazipur district of Uttar Pradesh, is survived his wife and two children Muskan, 6 and Manav, 4.

Shashank, a resident of Nasiruddin Pur of Gazipur in Uttar Pradesh, is survived by his mother.

General Officer Commanding of Chinar Corps Lt Gen JS Sandhu and all ranks paid their homage to the three slain soldiers in the solemn wreath-laying ceremony.

“The trio is remembered by their comrades for their commitment and dedication to duty,” an Army spokesman said after the ceremony.

The mortal remains of the martyrs will be flown to their native places tomorrow where the last rites will be held with full military honours.

“The Army stands beside the families of the bravehearts in this hour of grief and remains committed to their well being in future,” the spokesman said.
