Kupwara Attack: Mehbooba Mufti, Army Officials Pay Tribute To Soldiers Killed In Pakistan Firing


Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday joined the army in paying tribute to two soldiers from the state who were killed in Pakistani firing in Keran sector.

Lance Naik Ranjit Singh and Rifleman Satish Bhagat, who were deployed at a forward post in Keran sector in Kupwara, had suffered bullet wounds on Wednesday.

“In a solemn ceremony at Badamibagh Cantonment, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti joined Lieutenant-General JS Sandhu, Chinar Corps Commander and all ranks, in paying homage to the martyrs on behalf of a proud nation,” an army official said.

He said in a show of solidarity, officials from the state government and other security agencies also joined in paying their last respects to the martyrs.

Singh, 32, had joined the army in 2003 and hailed from village Burn in Jammu and Kashmir. He is survived by his wife and two children, the official said.

Hailing from Gurhasinghu village in the state, Bhagat was only 22 years old and had donned the uniform in 2015. He is survived by his parents.

“The mortal remains of the martyrs were flown for last rites to their native places, where they would be laid to rest with full military honours,” he added.
