IAF Garud Commandos Step In As Brothers For Martyred Friend's Sister's Wedding & It's Wonderful

Corporal Jyoti Prakash Nirala's death was an honourable one. He was martyred during a terrorist encounter in Jammu and Kashmir back in 2017. 

The late Garud commando, who gunned down five terrorists before sacrificing his own life for his motherland, was awarded the Ashok Chakra posthumously last year.

Recently, his friends and fellow soldiers from the Indian Air Force's Garud Commando Force decided to honour his memory by lending a hand in his sister's wedding in Patna.

Nirala was the only brother to his four sisters, and his untimely death left his entire family stranded. So, when the family was buckling under the pressure of accumulating the required funds to get Nirala's sisters married off, the Garud commandos came to the aid of their martyred mate's rescue.

Reportedly, every commando in the force contributed Rs 500 for the cause and eventually, the squad had collected nearly 5 lakh rupees at the end of the fundraiser. The collected amount was used to fund Nirala's sister's wedding.

Pictures of the fellow commandos making the bride walk on their palms, as a mark of respect, have since gone viral online.

People on social media cannot stop praising the example of solidarity and brotherhood that the commandos have shown towards their martyred brother and comrade.
