Pulwama martyr Major Dhoundiyal’s wife joins Indian Army to serve the country

New Delhi: Pulwama martyr Major Vibhuti Shankar Dhoundiyal’s wife Nitika Kaul on Saturday joined the Indian Army to pay tribute to him.

Maj Vibhuti Shankar Dhoundiyal made supreme sacrifice at Pulwama in 2019, was awarded SC(P).

PRO Udhampur, Defence Ministry, took to twitter and wrote, “#MajVibhutiShankarDhoundiyal, made the Supreme Sacrifice at #Pulwama in 2019, was awarded SC (P). Today his wife @Nitikakaul dons #IndianArmy uniform; paying him a befitting tribute. A proud moment for her as Lt Gen Y K Joshi, #ArmyCdrNC himself pips the Stars on her shoulders!”

Major Dhoundiyal was married for just 9 months before his sad demise but his sacrifice didn’t go in vain and his wife didn’t sit around moping her husband’s loss. She made the inspiring decision to join the Indian Army and make her husband proud.

Just six months after her husband’s martyrdom, Nikita filled the Short Service Commission (SSC) form. She cleared the exam and the Services Selection Board (SSB) interview as well.

She soon got commissioned at Officers Training Academy (OTA) at Chennai for her training and officially joined the Indian Army as Lieutenant Nikita Kaul Dhoundiyal on May 29, 2021.
