ANI  |  General News 

Villagers and Army men on Friday bid an emotional farewell to Rifleman Yash Paul of the Indian Army who died in Pakistan firing along the LoC yesterday.

Several army and civilian officers paid their last respects to the deceased who was cremated with full military honours.

"We are sad. His mother, brother, wife -- all of them are very sad," Yash's father Desh Raj said while demanding strong action against Pakistan.

One of his friends said, "While the country was playing with colours, Yash was playing Holi with bullets. When his family used to call him, he used to say don't worry, as long as I am here Pakistan won't be able to do anything.
