Remembering Squadron Leader Ajay Ahuja (VrC)- Kargil War Martyr

Squadron Leader Ajay Ahuja was tortured and killed after his MiG-21 was shot down and he ejected across the Line of Control during the Kargil conflict. Three days later, his body was handed over by Pakistan to the Indian Army at a border check post. Wing Commander C H Bal Reddy (retd) discovered his mortal remains and returned the coffin to his family.
