Departing from the normal, a Durga Puja pandal (marquee) here is paying tribute to the 19 Indian Army soldiers martyred in a terrorist attack on their camp in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir last month. Thousands of puja revellers thronged the Agantuk Club Durga Puja pandal (marquee) here to pray before the goddess and pay their respects to the martyred soldiers. "We have displayed the photographs of those martyred in Uri to keep alive the memory of their sacrifice," Kanraj Sarkar, a senior member of the Agantuk Club, told IANS. "TSR (Tripura State Rifles) troopers also paid their homage to the slain soldiers," he added. Credit: IANS
