Army pays tributes to killed soldier
SRINAGAR, Aug 4: Army today paid tributes to Sowar Vijay Kumar, who was killed in an encounter with militants in Baramulla district.

“Army paid befitting tribute to late Sowar Vijay Kumar, who made the supreme sacrifice during a counter terrorist operation on August 3, 2018, in Sopore, wherein two militants were eliminated,” a defence spokesman said.

Chinar corps commander Lt Gen A K Bhatt and all ranks paid homage to the soldier on behalf of a proud nation, he said.

The spokesman said in a show of solidarity, representatives from other security agencies also joined in to pay their last respects to the slain soldier.

Kumar had sustained a bullet injury during the fierce gun battle between militants and security forces in Dursoo village yesterday.

He was provided immediate first aid and evacuated to the 92 Base Hospital here, but succumbed to his injuries, the spokesman said.

Kumar, 31, who had joined the army in 2004, belonged to Uttaper Village of Naina Devi tehsil in Bilaspur district of Himachal Pradesh.

He is survived by his wife and two sons.

“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,” the spokesman said.
