Army corrects ‘mistake’ in Kargil video

Army corrects ‘mistake’ in Kargil video
NEW DELHI: After Brigadier OP Yadav (retired), a former commanding officer of 1 Bihar battalion that recaptured Jubar and Tharu hills in Batalik during the 1999 Kargil War, objected to an Indian Army documentary giving credit to 1/11 Gorkha Rifles, the Army has amended the short film.

“It was very disappointing to see in the movie circulated all over the country the misrepresentation of the fact that Jubar and Tharu were captured by 1/11 Gorkha Rifles instead of 1 Bihar. Either it is a genuine slip-up or a deliberate effort to insult 1 Bihar,” Yadav wrote in a letter to the Army.

The video was also shown during a Saturday event on the anniversary in Delhi attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Sources said after taking note of the letter, the Army amended the scene in the short film that gave credit to the 1/11 Gorkha Rifles for the operations. Now, the new video mentions the capture of Jubar Top by 1 Bihar. Speaking to ET, Yadav said that “justice has been done.”
