Though bleeding heavily he crawled out carbine in hand. He waited for the firing to stop, knowing that when it stopped, the militants would emerge to claim the jeeps' weapons and ammunition. Sandhu was determined to prevent this. As the firing died away, a militant appraoched the jeep, and Sandhu lifted his carbine and sprayed him with bullets, killing him insistantly. This was Kumaran, a prominent militant leader Sandhu continued firing, till his very last breath thwarting all militant attempts to apprach the jeep. For his supreme sacrifice, 2nd lt.
