Rich tributes were paid on the 75th Independence Day to the golden troika of Babu Ram, Aurangzeb and Zaheer, the three men who laid down their lives for the Nation while battling the terrorists. The Nation recognized their supreme sacrifice as Babu Ram was awarded Ashok Chakra, posthumously and Aurangzeb earlier had been awarded Shaurya Chakra again posthumously. Though Zaheer did not get a medal yet his sacrifice was no less. The Independence day ceremonies were held in Government Higher Secondary School Mendhar where Tahirra Tabassum BDC Chairman unfurled the National flag in front of an impressive gathering. Those present included Dr. Sahil Jandial SDM Sub Division Mendhar, host of civil administration functionaries, SDPO ZA. Jaffri and SHO Mendhar Manzoor Kohli. In the tribute paying ceremony Dr. Sahil Jandial said that the sacrifices of the brave men will keep igniting passions of the youth as they move forward into the future. The three martyrs have set up a strong legacy and big standards which would be the benchmark for the future generations. Adding SDPO ZA. Jaffri said that Mendhar is proud of these men and they have become immortal. Mendhar Police will be shortly organizing a felicitation gathering for the families of the three and will be given the recognition they deserve. Later many more tributes were paid by the officials and senior citizens!
