    A wreath laying ceremony was organised at the Hut of Remembrance at the National Defence Academy (NDA) on 10 Nov 20 in the honour of Late Captain Ashutosh Kumar, who attained martyrdom on night of 7-8 Nov 2020 during a counter infiltration operation in Machil Sector, Kupwara along the line of Control. Lt Gen Asit Mistry, AVSM, SM, VSM, Commandant, NDA paid homage to the brave heart in a solemn ceremony on behalf of the NDA fraternity.

    Captain Ashutosh Kumar was an alumnus of NDA, 132th course, H Squadron and passed out in May 2017. He was commissioned in 18th Battalion of the Madras Regiment.
    The brave officer led a daring operation thereby foiling an infiltration bid on the night of 07-08 nov 2020 in which his team neutralised three hard core militants.

    Demonstrating unparalleled courage and exceptional devotion to duty while making the supreme sacrifice, Late Captain Ashutosh Kumar has lived up to the motto of NDA – ‘Service Before Self’. Today, as his name gets inscribed in golden letter with full military honours on the sacred Hut of Remembrance, his martyrdom will continue to inspire future generations of NDA cadets. The fraternity offers condolences to the bereaved family in this hour of brief.
