Army pays tributes to solider

Army today paid befitting tribute to Late Sep Shammi Singh who had gone missing on 11 Dec 2017 fighting nature’s fury in Kashmir’s frontier Naugam Sector in Kupwara district last year. The Search and Rescue operations recommenced after the snow melted and ended on 13 Jun 2018. In a solemn ceremony at BB Cantt, Lt Gen S K Sharma, Chief of Staff Chinar Corps and all ranks paid homage to the martyr on behalf of a proud nation.

Late Sep Shammi Singh was part of an Operational Team which was serving in the formidable heights along the Line of Control in Uri and got swept away due to a landslide during patrolling.

The martyr, Sep Shammi Singh, was 26 years old and had joined the Army in 2012. He belonged to Village Makroli of Indora Tehsil in Kangra District of Himachal Pradesh and is survived by his parents.

The mortal remains of the martyr were flown for last rites to his native place, where he would be laid to rest with full military honours. In this hour of grief, the Army stands in solidarity with the bereaved family of the martyr and remains committed to their dignity and well being.
