Manesar: NSG commandos on Friday paid tribute
to their slain comrades Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan and
Havildar Gajinder Singh, who sacrificed their life during the
26/11 attack in Mumbai last year.

The commandos laid floral wreath and saluted the
martyrs memorial at the garrison here.

Commanders of the anti-hijack, anti-terror and VIP
security units also paid homage to the martyrs, an NSG officer
said.

While Unnikrishnan lost his life at hotel Taj, Singh
was martyred during the operation at Nariman House. Both the
commandos belonged to the 51 SAG of the elite counter terror
force.

The Ashok Chakra, the nation’s highest peacetime
gallantry award was given to both Unnikrishnan and Singh.

The NSG ended the terror siege, that lasted nearly 60
hours, on the financial metropolis by killing eight LeT
militants.
