Karnataka Assembly pays tribute to Nagrota martyrs

Press Trust of India  |  Belagavi (KTK) 

Assembly today paid tribute to the seven soldiers killed in the terror strike at Nagrota army camp in Jammu, and termed it as a "cowardly" attack on human society.

As the House met, Speaker K B Koliwad made the obituary reference and said the attack on the army camp was an act by enemies unable to digest India's progress, and called on the humanity to join hands in fight against terrorism.



Chief Minister said he had spoken to the father of Major Akshay Girish Kumar, an army officer from Bengaluru, who was martyred during the terror attack.

"I have spoken to Akshay's father. He is in Jammu to get the body. I have been told that the body may reach by tomorrow," he said.

Stating that Akshay pursued his education at a city college before joining the Army to serve the nation, the Chief Minister said would give compensation to the family.

He also paid his tributes to other six, martyred during the attack.

Opposition Leader said "we will have to avenge their death."

JD(S) Leader YSV Datta expressed concerns about such repeated terror incidents and loss of defence personnel's lives in the recent times.
