Surrounded, the men of 4 Jat - Lt Saurabh Kalia & Sepoys Arjun Ram, BhanwarLal Bagaria, Bhika Ram, Moola Ram and Naresh Singh were captured alive before Indian reinforcements could reach them.
Radio Skardu announced their capture some time later.
The Bastards in Khaki tortured their bodies.
But they couldn't dim the glory of their martyrdom.
What irks is that to this day, no one has called it a war crime.
6 NLI was the Pakistan Army Battalion that was deployed in the area where Kalia and his men went missing.
Incidentally, 6 NLI lost 150 odd men in an avalanche at Gyari in 2012.
Nature delivered justice in its own way, something that has been denied otherwise to the families of the departed.
Hope the Balwan Jats are at peace wherever they are.
God bless their souls.
