Working in a conflict zone has never been an easy affair for the men in olive and yet again a brave Army officer and son of the soil, Lt Sushil Khajuria, has sacrificed his life in the line of duty.

Amid a pall of gloom, a large number of people today bade adieu to 26-year-old Army officer, whose mortal remains were consigned to flames at his native village Sangwali in the Ghagwal area of Samba district this afternoon.

Besides politicians belonging to various parties, bureaucrats and Army officers, a large number of people paid their last respects to the departed soul. Distinguished among those who attended the cremation were Congress MP Lal Singh, Deputy Commissioner, Samba, Mubarak Singh, Brig Santosh Kuroop from 168 Infantry Division, Lalit Sharma, Commanding Officer of 3 Grenadiers, and Major Saurav of 18 Grenadiers.

The soldiers of 3 Grenadiers saluted the martyr before reversing their guns in his honour. Officers and personnel from 18 Grenadiers, 3 Grenadiers, 21 Grenadiers, 23 Grenadiers and 14 Assam Rifles also attended the last rites of the young officer.
