    2 Lt JJS Rane of 5 Garhwal Rifles was a valiant colleague of mine who was killed in the Battle of Hilli in the Bogra Sector of Bangladesh. My unit 8 Guards was also part of the same Brigade and as a Veteran who knew him and participated in the battle, one is aware of his bravery and sacrifice for the nation! God bless the soul of this Braveheart!
