Remembering her husband, Pallavi said, “I had last spoken to Col Sharma on May 1. Thereafter, he went for the operation. Last time, I had met him on February 28 in Udhampur. Thereafter, we had always spoken on phone.”

“I am a proud wife as my husband sacrificed his life while protecting the nation. Will not shed tears on his martyrdom. It is an honour to be sacrificed for the country,” she added.

Pallavi Sharma said Eeveryone should fulfill their responsibilities whichever field they are in”.
