  • Special Frontier Force (SFF) Soldier Nyima Tenzin was a Tibetan himself.

  • In fact, chants of “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”, “Jai Tibet” and “Vikas Regiment Zindabad” reverberated during the funeral procession.
  • A gun salute was given to Nyima Tenzin in Leh as the funeral pyre was lit along with buddhist chants.
  • In Himachal Pradesh, Tibetans took out a candlelight vigil in McLeod Ganj to pay tribute to Special Frontier Force Commando Nyima Tenzin, earlier today.
