PTI quoted an army officer as saying that at least 4-5 jawans became emotional and agitated after the death of their fellow soldier.

“The jawan complained of chest pain prior to a route march and was checked by the unit medical officer who found him fit. He later collapsed during the march. He was rushed to the field ambulance where he died,” the officer said.
