The second took place around the same time in Sonmarg, chiefly a tourist area, where an army camp was located.

 

The avalanche that proved deadly for the army hit the post at Neeru village in the night of 25 Jan 2017. The post at Neeru village was located in Tulail area, 25 Kms away from Gurez town in North Kashmir. The place located along the LOC normally remains cut off by road in winters.

    A very courageous and ever willing to take on challenges. A big loss to the Mahar Battalion and Army. May his soul rest in peace. The Nation owes a moral duty of supporting his family and especially his children, so that a message goes in the country that the Nation is standing behind every single soldier ready to risk his life for the Country.
