Lance Naik Sandeep Singh of 4 Para Commandos (Special Services) , one of the heroes of Indian army's surgical strike that took place in 2016 in Pak Occupied Kashmir, gave his supreme sacrifice in a counter-infiltration operation in Kupwara sector on Sunday morning. He killed three terrorists, before he died of gunshot wounds. In all, five terrorists were eliminated.
A brave army commando, his mortal remains were brought to his native village in Gurdaspur district of Punjab, where the final rites were done with state honours. India is proud of such a gallant hero.
Even in the face of such adversity, it was his mother who lent her shoulder to her son's coffin. Sandeep Singh's widow vowed that she would make their five-year-old son a brave soldier to follow in the footsteps of his father.
I admire the courage of the commando's family which showed tremendous conviction in the face of such a big loss. This, in essence, is the strength of our armed forces. Never say die. Brave men like Sandeep strike fear in the hearts of our enemies, and it because of our brave heroes that we can sleep in peace.
The nation salutes this brave hero for his heroic deeds.
