New Delhi: Defence Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday called the killing of a 22-year-old Army officer in Kashmir an “act of cowardice”, adding that the sacrifice reiterates nation’s commitment to eliminate “terrorism”.
“Abduction and murder of Lieutenant Ummer Fayaz by militants in Shopian is a dastardly act of cowardice. This young officer from Jammu and Kashmir was a role model,” Jaitley said in a tweet.
