One hundred and fifteen Kashmiri youths were inducted into the Indian Army at the passing out parade held in Srinagar today.
After a year’s hard training, a total of 219 youths, including those from Kashmir, were enthused and happy to be part of the army.
The family members of the new soldiers also attended the passing out parade that was held in Srinagar.
Brigadier Suresh Chowhan, who is the commander of the JKLI Regiment Centre, spoke of the role of the JKLI in the different wars fought during the past 50 years by India.
Lt Gen AK Bhat, core commander of the 15 Corp, was the chief guest at the passing out parade.
The induction comes in the backdrop of the militant attack in the Sunjwan base camp in Jammu earlier this month in which five soldiers and a civilian were killed.
