Bangla Hunt Desk: A 24-year-old soldier from Himachal Pradesh has died in an encounter with militants in Baramula. The army has informed the family of the soldier. After receiving this news, the shadow of mourning has descended on the whole area. Prashant Tagore joined the Indian Army on 23 December 2014 at the age of just 16. He died at the age of 24 to defend the country.

Prashant Tagore's cousin Rakesh Tagore said that he had been insisting on joining the army since childhood. No one could have predicted the consequences at such a young age. “We were informed by phone at night,” he said.
