 Creating a unique history of valour and dedication to duty,  Lance Naik Mohan Nath Goswami, killed ten terrorists in a short span of 11 days before making supreme sacrifice in continued fight against terror in Kashmir Valley on Thursday.

He had volunteers to join Indian Army’s elite para commandos unit in 2002 and “went on to gain the reputation of being one of the toughest soldiers of his unit, no small feat in an outfit that boasts of being one among the best in the world’’, the spokesperson said. His mortal remains were flown by an IAF aircraft to Bareilly, from where they will be taken by an Army helicopter to Pant Nagar and onward to his native place where he will be cremated with full military honours, he added in conversation with Indian Express

The series of operations started on August 23 in Khurmur, Handwara. It was to eliminate three Pakistan-born Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists.
He volunteered for the operation in Hafruda forest near Kupwara. He took down four terrorists but lost his life in heavy gun battle on Thursday.

The body of this brave heart has been flown to his hometown Bareilly. There he will be cremated with full military honor.

His native village is Indra Nagar, Haldwani in Nainital district of Himalayan state Uttarakhand.
He is survived by his wife and a seven-year-old daughter.

We salute this brave-heart soldier. We are safe because of such heroes who laid their lives for us. His sacrifice will remain in the annals of history and in our hearts.
