The villagers of Antehri in Kurukshetra will be cremating the body of Sepoy Mandeep Singh of the Indian Army’s 17 Sikh Regiment on Sunday. And while many across the country will be celebrating Diwali, the villagers have decided to honour the martyr by not taking part in the festival of lights.


Mandeep attained martyrdom in an encounter with terrorists on Friday night in Machhil sector of Kupwara area of Jammu and Kashmir. The terrorists then mutilated his body.

On Saturday night, Mandeep’s father Phool Singh had demanded that the government “must teach Pakistan a lesson” for mutilating his son’s body.




Mandeep’s widow Prerna, a constable in the Haryana Police, was inconsolable. She said, “Our government should take decisive action to finish Pakistan. We cannot let our soldiers die like this.”


The Indian Army said the soldier’s body was “mutilated” and added that it would retaliate with an “appropriate response”.

And on Saturday, the Indian Army destroyed four Pakistani posts across the Keran sector in a massive firing. The Army said that heavy casualties were inflicted in the assault.

Pakistan has a very dirty record of mutilating or torturing the bodies of Indian soldiers.

In 1999, just before the outbreak of the Kargil War, Pakistani troops captured Captain Saurabh Kalia, Sepoys Arjunram Baswana, Mula Ram Bidiasar, Naresh Singh Sinsinwar, Bhanwar Lal Bagaria and Bhika Ram Mudh of 4 Jat Regiment.

They were killed by the Pakistani forces and when their bodies were returned, it was discovered that they were brutally tortured. Their limbs were chopped off, teeth broken, nose and lips sliced off, skull fractured, ear drums pierced with hot iron rods, eyes punctured and genitals cut off.

Then on January 8, 2013 Pakistani soldiers killed two Indian soldiers Lance Naik Hemraj and Lance Naik Sudhakar Singh after entering India territory. They decapitated Hemraj’s body and took the head with them back to Pakistan.
