Rifleman Aurangzeb hailed from a family of soldiers:
Over the past few days, the state has witnessed a huge spurt in terror activity.
Last year in May, a young Indian Army officer Lt. Ummer Fayyaz was abducted while he was attending a family wedding and later his bullet-ridden was found.
The brutal killing of #Braveheart Rifleman Aurangzeb by terrorists in Pulwama brings back to mind the killing of Lt Ummer Fayaz in a similar dastardly act by terrorists. #RememberAndNeverForget these bravehearts #ServingOurNation pic.twitter.com/Nw0UCjWmDR— Flags Of Honour (@FlagsOfHonour) June 14, 2018
