Defence Forces have decided to honour the Army officer who had recently tied a Kashmiri man to a jeep for using him as a human shield against stone-pelters in the Valley.

Army Chief’s Commendation Card is decided to be confered on Major Leetul Gogoi for his sustained efforts in the Valley‘s counter-insurgency operations.

His work was a matter of pride for the nation and is considered to be a huge vindication for each patriotic Indian.

The honouring of the Major as per top Army brass is a redemption for “all of us” .

It is said that an atmosphere of fear was sought to be built through anti-India baiting.

Minister added that the nation is eternally indebted to the Army for showing our reverence and acknowledgment for its professional commitment.

“People who kept faith in patriotism had to face disappointment. Such an announcement at this time has led to the feeling of pride and honour among the people,”

Minister added that Govt has received several calls from the north-east of India, from where Gogoi hails, sharing their happiness that their “son” had done them proud.

Major Gogoi, who was serving in Valley had tied a man to a jeep during polling in the Srinagar Lok Sabha by-election on April 9.

For this act, he was honoured yesterday with the Army Chief’s Commendation Card.
