We salute Koppad’s bravery: Kejriwal

New Delhi, Feb 11 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said he saluted the bravery of Lance Naik Hanumanthappa Koppad, who died on Thursday after being buried under ice in the Siachen glacier.

“We salute his bravery. May his soul rest in peace. May god give strength to his family to bear this loss,” he told the media.

Koppad was buried in 35 feet of ice for six days after an avalanche hit an army patrol in the Siachen on February 3 at an altitude of over 20,000 feet.

While the nine others were declared dead, Koppad was miraculously found alive on February 8 and flown to Delhi the next day. Despite best medical care, he passed away due to multiple complications on Thursday.
