A wreath-laying ceremony was organised to pay tributes to Param Vir Chakra Flying Officer Nirmaljit Singh Sekhon, the only member of the Indian Air Force to be so honoured, on his martyrdom day at the Mini-Secretariat here on Monday.

Sekhon, a native of Rurka Issewal village in Dakha, had sacrificed his life during the Indo-Pak War of 1971.

Air Commodore Shoeb Kazmi, Air Officer Commanding, Air Force Station, Halwara; Ludhiana Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma and Joint Commissioner of Police (Headquarters) J Elanchezhian, along with other prominent persons, paid tributes to the martyr.

The Punjab Police presented the guard of honour to the martyr. Amardeep Singh Sekhon, nephew of the late flying officer, was also present during the ceremony.

Born on July 17, 1943, Sekhon was commissioned in the Indian Air Force on July 4, 1967. During the 1971 Indo-Pak war, Srinagar Air Field was attacked by a wave of six Pakistani aircraft on December 14, 1971.
