Bengaluru, May 5: Harish Nayani, a pilot of the Indigo Airlines and a medal-winning former IAF fighter pilot, recently earned kudos for bringing to the fore a veteran of the 1999 Kargil war with Pakistan, who was on board his flight.


Nayani, who lives in Bengaluru and had studied at the National Defence Academy and won the Vayu Sena Medal for his bravery, came to know about Naik Deep Chand, who had lost both his legs and right arm in the war, was on board. He announced the fact to the 180 odd passengers who were on the flight and they responded with a huge applause.

The gesture of the flight captain was appreciated at every nook and corner for war veterans mostly remain unsung heroes despite their valour in the face of the enemy's aggression.
