Death of jawan in Ladakh mishap

KURNOOL: The body of an Army Jawan killed in Ladakh when a military vehicle fell into the valley there two days ago will be brought to his native place in Guvvulakuntla village in Kothapalli Mandal on Monday.

Twentyeight-year-old P. Shiva Gangadhar was married only recently – November 26 – with a relative Radhika, a native of Somudevulapalli village in Prakasam district. He was expected to come here for Shivaratri and take his wife along with him to Ladakh, said his relative Shankar.

 

The village plunged into sorrow as information spread about the jawan’s death.

An ITI diploma holder, Gangadhar joined the Army in 2017 as a cleaner and was working at the Lela area of Ladakh. He was the only son of parents Chakali Ramudu and Ramulamma, farm labourers.
