“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.
