The Indian Army on Tuesday paid tributes to Lance Naik Sandeep Singh who was martyred in a gunfight in Jammu and Kashmir’s Tangdhar sector on Monday. Sandeep Singh was also a part of team that carried the surgical strike by the Indian Army across the LOC in 2016.
“In a solemn ceremony at the Badami Bagh Cantonment, Lieutenant General AK Bhatt, Chinar Corps Commander and all ranks paid homage to the martyr on behalf of a proud nation,” Defence Ministry spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia said in Srinagar.
