Pathankot: While investigation into the Pathankot terror attack continues, stories of courage and valour have been trickling in.

As per NDTV, when the attack was underway, at around 3 am, 12 Garud Commandos were deployed in the airbase.

While six commandos in three pairs were deployed outside the Mechanical Transport Wing to protect Air Force's assets, another six in similar formation were sent to take on the Pakistani terrorists.

 

During the firefight, one of the commandos Gursevak Singh sustained three bullet injuries. He, however, kept on battling the terrorists before succumbing.

Meanwhile, two other commandos - Sailesh Gaur and Katal - moved in and returned terrorists' fire.

Sailesh too took in bullets - more than six - in his lower abdomen. However, he too like Gursevak continued to fight the terrorists.

Sailesh and Katal together battled the terrorists for nearly an hour while waiting for back-up.

Had the terrorists managed to reach the technical area after escaping the Mechanical Transport area, they could have inflicted damaged on fighter jets and attack helicopters - key Air Force assets.

In all, seven military personnel were martyred in the Pathankot terror attack while a total of six terrorists were killed.

Sailesh, meanwhile, is recovering in a hospital in Ambala.
