Nainital, Sept.5 : Anti-Pakistan slogans were raised during martyr Lance Naik Mohan Goswami’s funeral procession in Lalkuan on Saturday.
The martyr had created history by eliminating 10 terrorists in 11 days before laying down his life.
Thirty-one-year-old Lance Naik Goswami hailed from Indira Nagar village in Haldwani Tehsil, and joined the elite Para Commandos in December 2002.
He was involved in the Rafiabad operations on August 26 and 27, and the fierce gunfight resulted in the elimination of three more LeT terrorists and the apprehension of one terrorist who was identified as Sajjad Ahmad alias Abu Ubed Ullah, a resident of Muzzafargarh.
The Rafiabad operation established proof of Pakistan’s complicity in abetting terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.
Lance Naik Goswami volunteered to be part of the operation launched in the dense Hafruda Forest near Kupwara, and this proved to be his last operation, but not before eliminating three terrorists in a heavy gun battle.
A true soldier, he breathed his last in action. His mortal remains were flown by an IAF aircraft to Bareilly and then taken by an Army helicopter to Pant Nagar this morning. From there, it will taken to his native place where he will be cremated with full military honours. (ANI)
