Vallabhan What caused this crash? May their souls rest in peace. More Indian servicemen are killed in accidents than in battles in the past few decades, when there’s been no war. The outdated MIG21s, chetaks etc. which are flying coffins.
Aatmnirbhar State of the art equipment took 76 days to recover our soldier body, please throw that equipment which took this much time Or either stop calling it state of the art equipment, disappointed.
