Major killed in Nagrota attack cremated with state honours

Press Trust of India  |  Solapur (Maha) 

The mortal remains of Major Kunal Manndadir Gosavi, who was among those killed in Tuesday's terrorist attack in Nagrota, Jammu, was today consigned to flames with full state honours at his home town of Pandharpur here.

The body was brought to the town in the morning. The pyre was lit by his father in the presence of a large number of people this evening.

The Major is survived by his wife Uma and father.

District Guardian Minister Vijaykumar Deshmukh and District Collector Ranjit Kumar also offered their respects to the departed Armyman.

Jammu was rocked by two terror attacks on November 29 in which seven army personnel, including two Major-rank officers, were killed and eight other security men, including a BSF DIG, were injured, before six heavily-armed terrorists were eliminated in the separate fierce encounters.
