The fact can’t be denied that it is the armed forces of Pakistan that have protected the country from many adversities. In particular, our young soldiers sacrifice their life for the wellbeing of their citizens. Among those brave soldiers was Lieutenant Nasir Khalid.
On 3rd September 2020, three soldiers of the Pakistan Army were martyred while four personnel wounded as a patrolling vehicle hit a local-made landmine in North Waziristan. Lieutenant Nasir Khalid was one of them.
Apart from Lt Khalid, Naik Muhammad Imran and Sepoy Usman Akhtar were also among the martyrs in the landmine blast.
It is important to note that Lt. Khalid was not just any soldier. Completing the 137th Long Course of Pakistan Military Academy (PMA), he was also a graduate of the Royal Military Academy of Australia.
