A wreath laying ceremony was held here on Saturday to pay tribute to Jawan Ghanshyam, who lost his life in the terror attack in Zakura in Jammu and Kashmir last night.
Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) Director General Archana Ramasundram paid her tribute to the slain soldier and said that his sacrifice for the country will make them more determined towards their duty.
"He was only 21 and had joined the Indian Army three years ago. I am thinking about his family now," she said.
The jawan lost his life and eight others got injured after the militants attacked a paramilitary force convoy on the outskirts of Srinagar last evening.
The gunmen escaped after firing at a convoy of the paramilitary force.
Security forces immediately cordoned off the area and launched search operations to track down the militants.
This is the first militant attack in the city since the encounter at Nowhatta on August 15 in which a CRPF commandant was killed and nine other personnel were injured.
