A salute to our defenders

After an attack on Amarnath Yatra, come this news:

A major infiltration bid into the Kashmir Valley was foiled on Tuesday by the army in which six persons, including a colonel, a trooper and four intruders, were killed in the Uri sector of the Line of Control.

Heavy firefight ensued in which Colonel Vasanth personally flushed out militants. Displaying cool courage and operational acumen, Col Vasanth V poised himself and his party to block the escape routes of entrapped militants. Though being wounded, he moved swiftly closer to the hiding place of militants and fierce encounter from close quarters ensued. With little care for his personal safety, the daring Commanding Officer, leading from the front, gunned down the entrapped militants.

"In a point blank face to face exchange of heavy volume of fire Colonel Vasanth V, Lance Naik Bachav Shahkant Ganapat and Lance Havildar Ramanna RB were injured and four militants were killed," he said, adding, "Colonel Vasanth V and Lance Naik Bachav Shahkant Ganapat succumbed to injuries in hospital. The operation is still in progress."
