A pall of gloom descended in Solapur and Nanded districts of Maharashtra on Wednesday (30 November) after an army officer and a soldier were killed battling terrorists in Tuesday's terror attack in Nagrota, Jammu and Kashmir.
Indian Army's Major Kunal M Gosavi, 33, of Pandharpur city in Solapur and Lance-Naik Sambhaji Y Kadam, 35, of Jana village in Nanded were felled by terrorist bullets during an attack on an army camp at Nagrota, near Jammu city.
Gosavi had come home on a month's vacation and left for re-joining duty at the Nagrota camp last Saturday (26 November). Posted in the fifth Maratha Light Infantry, Kadam had sought a posting in Jammu and Kashmir to join the fight against cross-border terror. He was due to retire around 2018.
