He and his team members had diffused one IED successfully but another one got activated and the officer suffered grievous injuries and attained martyrdom.

The mortal remains of the braveheart reached his residence with hundreds of people gathered here to pay their tributes.

 

 

Major Bisht's supreme sacrifice, as well as that of 40 CRPF personnel who were targetted by a Jaish terrorist in a suicide attack, has led to a national outrage with calls for strict action against Pakistan. The country is held responsible for providing shelter and support to terrorists who target Indian security forces.
