"If I had another son, I would have sent him to the army too,” said Sunita Kundu,  mother of slain 22-year-old Indian Army officer,  who was killed in Paskitani shelling on Sunday at the line of control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district.

The slain Indian Army captain’s mother also urged the Indian Government to take revenge of her son’s death by giving a befitting reply to the Pakistan.

She further added, “He use to tell me ‘I am not born for paperwork. I am born to protect my country borders. Never stop me from getting a posting at LoC.”

The captain’s sister said that Kundu was promoted as Captain on January 26 and was psoted from Poonch to Rajouri sector recently.

Captain Kapil Kundu, along with Rifleman Ramavtar — 28, Havilar Roshan Lal — 42 and Rifleman Shubam Singh — 22 was killed in Pakistani shelling at LoC in the Bhimbher Gali sector of Rajouri district.

The slain Captain was to return home in Haryana’s Pataudi by this weekend to celebrate his 23rd birthday but he came a week ahead wrapped in Tricolour.

The Captain in his Facebook post had recently updated, “Life Should BE Big Instead of Being Long…”
