An Indian Army jawan was martyred on Tuesday after Pakistan resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation along the line of control (LoC) in Sunderbani Sector, district Rajouri (J&K).
“Own troops responded strongly to the enemy fire. In the incident, Naik Aneesh Thomas was critically injured and later succumbed to his injuries,” informed the army in a statement.
“Naik Aneesh Thomas was a brave, highly motivated and a sincere soldier.
The nation will always remain indebted to him for his supreme sacrifice and devotion to duty”, the statement reads.
