The Army on Saturday celebrated 72nd Infantry Day in Srinagar.

The celebrations began with a solemn wreath-laying ceremony, in which Lt Gen AK Bhatt, General Officer Commanding (GOC), Chinar Corps, and all ranks paid tributes to the martyrs at the Badami Bagh Cantonment, an Army statement said.

Paying homage to the sacrifices of valiant soldiers, the GOC said the real tribute to the martyrs would be to remain committed to the cause for which they had laid down their lives.

He also urged the troops to continue to work with dedication and steadfast approach.
