The Army jawan who was killed in this attack has been identified as 22-year-old Sep Rajendra Singh
Srinagar: A soldier of the Indian Army was killed in a stone-pelting incident which took place in Anantnag district of south Kashmir on Thursday evening.
The incident took place when stone-pelters attacked an Army convoy which was passing through the Anantnag bypass tri-junction near NH-44. The Army convoy was attacked at the same time when an encounter was underway in Bijbehara town of Anantnag, in which four terrorists were gunned down by the security forces.
The Army jawan who was killed in this attack has been identified as 22-year-old Sep Rajendra Singh. Singh was from Uttarakhand and had joined the Army in 2016.
Speaking to MyNation, a senior Army official said, "Sep Rajendra Singh was part of QRT, which was providing security to a Border Roads Organisation convoy on October 25. Last evening, when the convoy was passing through the Anantnag bypass tri-junction near NH-44, few people hurled stones at the vehicle and Sep Rajendra Singh got injured after a stone directly hit his head”.
Today, stone pelters killed a soldier. Who takes responsibility for this death? Who will go to his old mother & tell her that her son died because he chose to fight for India? Who will tell her that a stone pelter has more rights than her son, a martyr? https://t.co/EX1oLFFkXi— Major Gaurav Arya (@majorgauravarya) October 26, 2018
"He was provided immediate first aid and evacuated to 92 base hospital, but later succumbed to his injuries", he added.
