The conflict, which claimed the lives of more than 500 officers and soldiers, many of whom were posthumously given gallantry awards, is also referred to as Operation Vijay, which was the name of the Indian operation that cleared the Kargil sector.
The town of Kargil is located 205 km from Srinagar, and faces Pakistan’s so-called Northern Areas across the Line of Control. (ANI)
