A year after the abduction and murder of brave Indian soldier Aurangzeb, his brothers have now joined the army to avenge his death. Aurangzeb’s two brothers - Mohammad Tariq and Mohammad Shabbir, have joined the Infantry Battalion of Territorial army.
Aurangzeb was abducted from Pulwama by Islamic terrorists and later his bullet-ridden body was recovered on June 14 last year. He was on the way to his home for Eid celebrations when he was abducted.
His father Mohammad Hanief, an ex-serviceman, told media, "My two sons have joined TA Battalion. When Aurangzeb was killed, I told Raksha Mantri and top officers of the Indian Army that I will dedicate all my six sons to the forces." He said, "My two sons will avenge the death of my son."
Aurangzeb's mother Raaj Begum said, "Yes, we fear something untoward may happen, but our sons wanted to join the Indian Army."
Mohammad Tariq said, "After our training, we will fight against terrorism and will take revenge for our martyred brother Aurengzeb. Today we feel proud of joining the Indian army and are proud of our country."
Aurangzeb's father is a former sepoy of the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry. His eldest son Mohammed Qasim has already completed 12 years service and is back to serving in the Kashmir Valley.
