(We missed reporting on this death as it wasn’t reported in popular vernacular newspapers or we missed it because of the sporadic nature of reporting, but recently found his name and photo on the poster of a memorial event. Amar Mander tirelessly searched for the source to the report on this news which he finally found last night and shared with me. He also found sources for Jaswinder Singh Jangpura and Harminder Singh Jangpura, other 2 martyrs who appeared on the poster but were not recorded in our list. Most the missing data that I have updated in the upcoming posts have been provided by him).
