    Sepoy Gurtej Singh who is one of the martyrs of the Galwan clashes between India and China. 

    Youngest of the three siblings, Sepoy Gurtej Singh, who was among the 20 soldiers who attained martyrdom in Galwan Valley on Monday night, was also the family’s favourite.

    On Friday, when his mortal remains reached his native village, his grief-stricken family members put a 'sehra' (traditional headgear for a groom) on the casket containing his mortal remains. They enen put a graland around his neck, the one that grooms wear, before consigning his mortal remains to flames at Birewala Dogar village in Mansa district with fully military honours amid slogans of 'Gurtej Singh Amar Rahe', 'Bole So Nihal Sat Sri Akal'.
