Hawaldar Jagdish Chand — Defence Security Corps
Hawaldar Jagdish Chand is from Chamba district, in Himachal Pradesh. He was transferred from Leh to Pathankot a few months ago. He was in his village Gola on a 10-day leave; he had returned to Pathankot only a day before the attack. Chand, a cook at the base, was in the kitchen when the terrorists entered; he wrestled a rifle from the attacker and killed him with the terrorist’s own weapon. He was caught in a hail of enemy fire and succumbed to his injuries. He is survived by his wife, a son, and two daughters.
