Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman arrives to pay condolences to rifleman Aurangzeb's family, in Poonch on Wednesday, June 20, 2018.

The slain soldier's father has also served in the Army.

Army chief General Bipin Rawat also visited the family on Monday.

Aurangzeb was brutally killed in Pulwama district in the Kashmir Valley.

He was on way to join his family on the occasion of Eid when the militants intercepted the private vehicle in which the soldier was travelling to Shopian town, from where he would take another vehicle for Poonch.

A video released by the militant group that abducted Aurangzeb showed him bravely acknowledging that he was a soldier of the Indian Army and had participated in anti-militancy operations in south Kashmir.
