An army officer died while performing operational duties in eastern Ladakh amid harsh weather, an army statement said on Friday. He has been identified as Major L Rambo Singh of Thangmeiband village in Imphal district, Manipur.

“Maj L Rambo Singh of the Indian Army laid down his life while performing operational duties in extreme harsh climate and rough mountainous terrain of eastern Ladakh,” said a defence spokesperson. “The officer was martyred while leading a convoy of vehicles carrying operational stores from Tangtse to Karu over extremely inhospitable terrain,” he added.
