Kisiko reservation chahiye to kisiko azadi bhai. Humein kuchh nahin chahiye bhai. Bas apni razai: Capt Pawan Kumar


(Some want reservation and some want independence. I do not want anything, except my blanket.)

After hearing about his son’s death, Capt Kumar’s father Rajbir Singh’s first reaction was, “I had one child, I gave him to the Army, to the nation. No father can be prouder.” “He was destined to be in the Army as he was born on Army Day,” he added.


“Pawan Kumar was a young and a dynamic officer, He was a true commander”, Lt. Gen. S.K. Dua, General Officer Commanding of Udhampur based 15 Corps said after paying respects to his mortal remains.
