Army officer embraced martyrdom


RAWALPINDI, Oct 29 (APP): An officer, Lt Col Shahid embraced
Shahadat (martyrdom) while Major Jalal got seriously injured on the
Motorway Saturday evening.

The officers were going back to Nowshera from Rawalpindi in a
military convoy, an Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) press
release said.

At around 2000 hrs routes were blocked with containers, both
officers got down from vehicles and were on foot to find an
alternate route for the convoy. In the dark of the night, both fell
from the road edge into a ditch along the motorway near Hazro.
