Pall of gloom descends at Nagrota martyr's home in Punjab

Press Trust of India  |  Batala (Pb) 

A pall of gloom today descended at Mann Nagar here, the native place of Hawildar Sukhraj Singh, who attained martyrdom during the terror attack at Nagrota.

Singh, 32, was among the seven army personnel who were killed when trained heavily armed terrorists in police uniform stormed an Army unit at Nagrota, about three kms from the Corps headquarters on the outskirts of Jammu city yesterday.



Singh, who had joined Army 11 years ago, is survived by his wife Harmeet Kaur, mother Swanjeet Kaur, elder brother Dhanrja Singh, seven-year-old daughter Subhpreet and five-year-old son Sargundev Singh.

His wife Harmeet Kaur said he was posted at Nagrota in Jammu six months ago and was to come home on November 29 on leave.

"But instead of going on leave, he fought the terrorists and attained martyrdom," she said.

The soldier's family members demanded that be "taught a lesson" for harbouring terrorists while Deputy Commissioner, Gurdaspur, Pardeep Sabharwal and other civil officers expressed condolences to the family.

His body is expected to arrive here tomorrow.
