शहीद अश कुमार गुरुंग पंचतत्त्व में विलीन

10:31 PM
सोलन। पाकिस्तानी आतंकवादियों की घुसपैठ को नाकाम कर प्राणों की आहुति देने वाले शहीद लांस नायक अश कुमार गुरुंग शुक्रवार को पंचतत्त्व में विलीन हो गए। सुबाथू के श्मशानघाट में पूरे सैन्य व राजकीय सम्मान के साथ उनका अंतिम संस्कार किया गया। सामाजिक न्याय एवं अधिकारिता मंत्री कर्नल धनी राम शांडिल ने भी सुबाथू पहुंच कर शहीद को श्रद्धांजलि अर्पित की।

बता दें कि, चार दिन पहले जम्मू-कश्मीर के तंगधार क्षेत्र में पाकिस्तानी आतंकवादियों ने भारतीय सीमा में घुसने का प्रयास किया था। दूसरी तरफ से जब गोलीबारी आरंभ हुई तो सीमा पर तैनात गोरखा राइफल्स के जवानों ने मोर्चा संभाल लिया और आतंकवादियों का डटकर मुकाबला करते हुए आतंकियों को खदेड़ दिया। लेकिन, इसी बीच गोलीबारी में भारतीय सेना के दो जवान शहीद हो गए थे। इनमें से एक 3/1 जीआर के लांस नायक अश कुमार गुरुंग थे। बुधवार को उनका शव हेलीकॉप्टर से सुबाथू लाया गया था और नेपाल से उनके परिजनों के आने की प्रतीक्षा की जा रही थी। शुक्रवार को परिजनों के सुबाथू पहुंचने के बाद शहीद का अंतिम संस्कार किया गया।
इससे पहले शहीद के शव को तिरंगे में लपेट कर श्मशानघाट तक पहुंचाया गया। इस मौके पर सामाजिक न्याय एवं अधिकारिता मंत्री कर्नल धनी राम शांडिल ने शहीद के शव पर पुष्पचक्र अर्पित कर उन्हें भावभीनी श्रद्धांजलि अर्पित की। 14 गोरखा प्रशिक्षण केंद्र के कार्यवाहक कमांडेंट कर्नल एचपी सिंह सहित समस्त सैन्यअधिकारियों व जवानों ने शहीद को सलामी दी।

A tribute to Gorkha martyr in J&K by comrades and seniors

10:15 AM
Kolkata: Lance Havildar Prem Bahadur Resmi Magar lived by the motto 'Kayar Hono Banda Marno Ramro (Better to die than to live the life of a coward)' till he breathed his last while fighting terrorists along the Line of Control (LAC) in Tangdhar, Jammu & Kashmir, on Wednesday. On Thursday, he was given a befitting tribute by comrades and seniors at the Badami Bag Cantonment in Srinagar.

Magar, a 'Ghatak' commando of the unit, was part of the team that thwarted an infiltration bid and shot dead four terrorists. In the process, he was martyred. A battle hardened soldier with 18 yrs of distinguished service, Magar had also been actively involved in two previous operations in the same area in which seven terrorists were killed.

The warrior hailed from Sauni village in the Falpa district of Nepal and was a true embodiment of the martial and yet mirthful character that is common to all Gorkhas. It was his ilk that made the late Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw once famously remark, "If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he's either lying or he's a Gorkha". The Gorkha Rifles is one of the finest regiments of the Indian Army, many units of which have their recruitment base in Nepal as part of a Britain-India-Nepal tripartite agreement signed at the time of independence in 1947.

Paying glowing tributes to the hero, Lt Gen Satish Dua, commander, Chinar Corps, said: "The nation shall remain indebted to his sacrifice and the present generation as well as posterity will continue to draw inspiration from him." Expressing his condolences to the bereaved family, he reaffirmed the Army's commitment to their well being.

The firefight broke when the militants were challenged and opened fire. This is the second infiltration bid in the Kupwara district since Tuesday. The four militants were killed close to the Line of Control (LoC) in Kalban Nar in Tangdhar sector, 185 km from Srinagar. The gunfight erupted early today when the Army noticed movement of a group of heavily armed militants in the sector.

On Wednesday, a signalman of the army succumbed to his injuries and a terrorist was shot dead by the army after militants infiltrated into Kupwara district, near Macchil sector.

Siliguri Police fined a vehicle on the way to receive martyred body for overload

7:54 PM
In a most shocking incident West Bengal Police in Siliguri fined Rs 1000/- for the vehicle that was supposed to carry BSF Jawan, Saheed Dinesh Giri, who was martyred while fighting against terrorists in Kashmir for overload.

On Friday the 3rd June 2016 Constable Dinesh Giri was martyred in a militant attack near Gauri van in J&K. On 4th June when his family was going from their residence Durga Nagar, Isckon Mandir Road, Siliguri to Bagdogra airport to receive the martyr's body in a jeep they were intercepted by the West Bengal police for the vehicle being 'overloaded'. Even though the family members of Saheed Giri explained the police refused to listen to the humble submissions about the tragic circumstances in which the martyr's family had to rush to receive the body. They were allowed to move further only after paying a fine of Rs 1000/-.

According to the Srinagar based BSF spokesman, militants attacked the BSF convoy near Gorivan area on Friday leaving 13 BSF men injured. Head constables Giresh Shukla, Constable Dinesh Giri and Constable Mohinder Ram later succumbed to their injuries.

This is not the first time - repeatedly Wasted Bengal has refused to honour our brave Gorkha martyrs, and what happened yesterday was just an extension of that lack of respect, apathy and discrimination that Gorkhas continue to face in Bengal.This is the respect the West Bengal state machinery has for the martyrs who lay down their lives for the country. For some reasons the crony national media has not considered the incident news worthy.

Every nation loving Indian must understand that till date NO REPRESENTATIVE from Bengal government has gone to the airport to receive the dead body of our Gorkha martyrs.

Saheed Giri leaves behind his wife, two sons, a daughter and his parents. We Pray to God to grant the family strength to overcome this irreparable loss.

Six personnel including an officer of the Assam Rifles have been killed in an encounter with terrorists in Manipur's Chandel district. The men belonged to a Quick Reaction Team.

Sources in the government said that an umbrella group of terrorist organisations planned and executed the attack. Four AK rifles, one INSAS Rifle and one LMG rifle have been taken away by the militants. CorCom, which is responsible for many bombings, is an umbrella group in Manipur comprising the Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP), Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL), People’s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (PREPAK), Progressive faction (PREPAK-Pro), Revolutionary People’s Front (RPF – the political wing of the People’s Liberation Army – PLA), United National Liberation Front (UNLF) and United Peoples Party of Kangleipak (UPPK).

Home Minister Rajnath Singh - who reviewed the situation with top security officials -- directed the forces to take the "strongest possible action" against the terrorists involved.
