Srinagar: Over 180 soldiers from Jammu and Kashmir were today inducted into the Army after completion of their year-long training. The 185 soldiers from the state were part of a passing out parade at Bana Singh Parade ground of Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry (JAKLI) Regimental centre, where hundreds of relatives of the new recruits had gathered on the occasion. The parade that marks the graduation of a recruit and his induction as a soldier was reviewed by Chief of Integrated Defence Staff Lt Gen Satish Dua, who is also Colonel of the JAKLI Regiment, a defence spokesman said.

He said the parade was attended by over 1,000 relatives including parents of the young soldiers, besides a number of civil and military dignitaries. The dauntless young soldiers of the regiment hailing from all regions and religions of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, marching in precise unison with a singular aim of devoting their lives in service of their nation, singing their Regimental Song 'Balidanam Veer Lakshnam', inspired one and
all as their voice echoed in the Parade ground, the spokesman said. Their salute to the tri-colour with national anthem playing inspired patriotic fervour in all present, he said.
