Two odia jawans are among the 20 India soldiers martyred in a violent face-off with the Chinese troops

Bhubaneswar:17/6/20: Two odia jawans are among the 20 India soldiers martyred in a violent face-off with the Chinese troops in Galwan valley, eastern Ladakh, on Monday night.

The two jawans have been identified as Chandrakant Pradhan (28) of Biarapanga village of Raikia block in Kandhamal district and Nanduram Soren of Bijatala village under Champarada block in Rairangpur tehsil of Mayurbhanj district.

Though there is no official confirmation yet, their family members have confirmed their death.

Chandrakant’s mother Bilasini Pradhan told the media that he had joined the Bihar Regiment six years ago. He was posted in Ladakh two years ago and was on duty along the LAC.

Nanduram was also with the Bihar Regiment.

The Indian soldiers were reportedly attacked with barbed wire club.
