    Salute to the great son of India who made supreme sacrifice while safeguarding our territorial waters from a lurking Pakistani Submarine PNS Hangor. His frigate INS Khukri sank off Diu coast in Arabian sea on 9 December 1971 after it was tarpedoed by PNS Hangor.
    His bust is installed in Ambedkar Chhatrawas near Datal-Jatoli village, very close to Kankarkheda in Meerut Cantt. Things are in very bad shape there. This martyre has not been accorded with the place/respect in society which may commensurate with his sacrifice.
