New Delhi: India’s Special frontier force’s (SFF) soldier Nyima Tenzin was cremated with full public honours in Ladakh on Monday. Nation bid a tearful adieu to the Tibetan jawan who lost his life on August 31 in a landmine blast.
The Tibetan community in Ladakh came together to pay tribute to the soldier of the ‘7 Vikas’ battalion. On his picture was written, “hero of India’s resistance against Chinese PLA’s aggression” and “the unsung Tibetan”.
The SFF is a paramilitary unit by ethnic Tibetans whose forefathers left Tibet after Chinese occupations. It was created in 1962.
So far India had not revealed the existence of SFF but this time the Tibetan community came out in public. Definitely, this is going to annoy China amid the heightened tensions at the border.
