Home they brought his warrior dead

Amid a pall of gloom the lifeless Chitra Saikia has arrived in his home on Sunday morning three days after he was killed in firing along the Indo-Pak border.

At around 8 in the morning, Chitra’s body was flown to Guwahati where senior army officials paid their last respect. Then it was taken to his home in Jagi Bhakat gaon in Jagiroad where he would be cremated.

Various parties, organizations and individuals have condoled the death of the army jawan and conveyed deep sympathy to the bereaved family members.
