Army seeks Haryanvis' support for officer's last rites

New Delhi, Feb 21 (IANS) The Indian Army has asked the people of Haryana to extend their support "in giving a befitting farewell" to late Captain Pawan Kumar who was killed fighting terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir's Pampore town on Sunday.

The 23-year-old Pawan Kumar, from the Special Forces, belonged to Jind district in Haryana.

"He was an inspiring leader who in spite of being injured earlier in an anti-terrorist operation, went on to volunteer for more operations," an army spokesperson told IANS on Sunday.


The mortal remains of the officer will be flown to Jind town on Monday as road transportation has been disrupted by the ongoing Jat agitation in Haryana, the army said. The last rites with full military honours would be performed in his village.

"The army appeals to the people of Haryana to extend their full support in giving a befitting farewell to this brave son of their soil," the army spokesperson said.
