NEW DELHI: In homes across Rajasthan, Tripura and Karnataka, families mourned sons lost to the strike terror in Nagrota earlier this week but at the same time firmly said that they are proud of their kin's martyrdom.
In Tuesday's terror attack, seven army personnel, including two Major-rank officers, were killed, and eight other security men, including a BSF DIG, were injured, before six heavily-armed militants were gunned down in Nagrota.
Family members of 26-year-old Raghvendra Singh, who died fighting militants in the counterattack in Nagrota, Jammu and Kashmir, said they are now more determined to raise his five-year-old son "to serve the Indian Army".
"My son is (a) five-month-old and I will raise him to serve the nation by joining the Army. If ever I get a chance, I am also ready to serve the nation," said 24-year-old Anju Sikarwar, wife of Raghvendra. She fainted when she heard about her husband's death, and while she's still grieving now, she's calm.
In Tripura, the family of Army jawan Chittaranjan Debbarma recalls how he (Debbarma) managed to call his family even as the Nagrota attack was underway.
"He managed to make a last phone call to his family before dying in a gunfight with the terrorists who attacked the Army camp", Debbarma's wife said.
"Debbarma told his relative they were in the midst of a militant attack and this was probably his last call to his family. He (the relative) clearly heard the sound of gunshots and grenade blasts over the phone, but after a few minutes the mobile phone automatically got disconnected," the martyr's wife was quoted as saying by a local TV channel.
And Karnataka's martyr Major Akshay Kumar had wanted his daughter to be inspired from young Kashmiri kick-boxing champion Tajamul Islam.
"Heard her (Islam) speaking on TV after a fantastic medal and so proud of this young girl! When Naina (his daughter) is old enough to understand, hope she will be inspired by real achievers like Tajamul," is what Kumar told his mother, she recalled in a Facebook post.
