Remember the martyrs, not Politicians!

Martyr Major Mukund Varadarajan :

The Major, a native of East Tambaram, joined 22 Rajput after training at Officers' Training Academy in Chennai. He had been deployed with the 44 Rashtriya Rifles for counter-insurgency operations in Shopian. Kashmir.

The terrorist encounter, in which the Major and the jawan were killed, ended on Saturday. Bodies of three militants were also recovered.

Security forces had launched search operations in Karewa Malino in Shopian, 55 km from Srinagar on April 25, 2014 on information about presence of three Hizb-ul Mujahideen militants. The militants were asked to surrender but resorted to firing, triggering the gunfight.

Shopian is part of Anantnag Parliamentary constituency and the encounter took place a day after militants attacked a polling party escorted by police and CRPF in the district at the end of the voting on Thursday.

One polling officer was killed while five others, including three security personnel, were injured in the incident.

My deepest heart felt condolences to the bereaved family and patriots of India.

Remember the martyrs, not Politicians!
