There were no talks about the Wing Commander Siddharth Vashisht amongst people or in the social media. We were not quite aware of him nor did we talk about him in any places as much as we talked about Wind Commander Abhinandan’s arrest and recovery. At present, we are supposed to pay respect for the death of 6 people including Wing Commander Siddharth Vashisht in the helicopter crash.
Wing Commander Abhinandan’s helicopter was attacked and he was arrested by Pakistani Army. On the same day, 6 Wing Commanders including Siddharth Vashisht, Ninath Manthavkane, Pankaj Kumar, Vikrant Shervath travelled in Army Helicopter met with an accident in Budgam region and died.
Six soldiers, including Siddharth Vashisht, were killed when an Indian Army Mi 17 V5 helicopter was on duty in the Badgam area of Kashmir. We do not know how this accident happened. The Ministry of Defense reported on February 27, 2019 that the inquiry was going on regarding this accident.
Some suspect that the Pakistani military should have attacked the Mi 17 V5 helicopter carrying 6 soldiers including Siddharth Vashisht.
The Pakistani Army reported that they have attacked 2 Indian fighter jet was attacked but Indian army reported only one fighter jet that carried Wing Commander Abhinandan was attacked.
Further, The Pakistani military spokesman said there was no connection between the Budgam accident and them. The investigation is going on how the Mi 17 V5 helicopter crashed. The final rituals were given to honor the death of Indian soldiers. The final ritual of Ninath Manthavkane took place in Nashik.
We did not talk much about the deaths of 6 Indian soldiers, including 31-year-old Wing Commander Siddharth Vashisht. Indian soldiers lose their life more in the defense of our country.
Recall the sacrifice of the soldiers who gave their lives for the nation.
