The Inter-Services Public Relations ISPR has issued a statement on the official handle paying homage to the son of the soil.

“Nation pays homage 2 Havaldar Lalak Jan; NH [Nishan-e-Haider], who laid his life defending [the] motherland against [heavy] odds in most challenging battlefield environment during Kargil conflict on 7 July 99,” DG ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar shared in a tweet.

“His fortitude and selflessness of Lalak Jan will keep inspiring the indomitable defenders of Pakistan for times to come”, he added.
