Grenadier Raghvendra and seven other army men, including two officers were martyred in Nagrota terrorist attack on Tuesday (November 29). The said group of terrorists launched attack on Indian military camp early in the morning. Following this tragic attack, the bodies of martyrs were taken from Nagrota to Agra by flight.

Big crowds gathered in their homes to salute the bravery, sacrifice and never-dying spirit of Raghvendra, who laid down his life for his motherland’s safety.
Nagrota Martyr Raghvendra Parihar was Cremated Yesterday
Yesterday, Raghvendra’s family members along with chief army personnel took his coffin to a local crematory for his last rites. Large number of people where present on the occasion to offer their condolences to his family, Rajasthan CM Raje being one of them. Emotions ran high when Parvendra Singh (Raghvendra’s elder brother), who serves in Rashtriya Rifles swore to avenge his death with tearful eyes.
People couldn’t hold their tears when Raghvendra’s six-month old son lit his pyre. Grief-stricken crowds chanted anti-Pakistan slogans as the martyr’s body consigned to flame. Father Ramgopal Parihar recalled his son’s unconditional love for the motherland. The most sentimental moment since his death was when the deceased’s wife Anju Sikarwar resolved to raise his son as an army man like his father. The last time Raghvendra called his family, he had promised his mother he would return soon. However, the family didn’t expect his arrival in this manner.
As Nagrota Martyr Raghvendra Parihar rests in eternal peace, an important question surfaces in every mind. How long will the army men continue to lose their lives for the sake of our country?
