    The flame will traverse through 11 towns and cities before reaching Dras where Indian Army personnel and families of the martyrs will pay tributes.

    Receiving the flame, Professor Y.S.R. Murthy, Registrar, JGU said: “Pride, honour and inspiration are the three pillars on which we mark today’s commemoration, together as a nation. The academic fraternity of JGU extends a warm welcome to the victory flame.”

    The fighting ceased was on July 26, 1999. The day since then is celebrated every year as ‘Kargil Vijay Diwas’
