A brave jawan of Assam Rifles sacrificed himself to save his friend.

In a poignant testament to the unwavering courage and selflessness of our armed forces, Sep Shwensinlo Semp, of The Assam Regiment, exhibited extraordinary bravery during a tragic incident at Nsonji Lake, Tsimenyu, Nagaland. While on leave and enjoying a picnic with friends on 30th June 2024, Sep Shwensinlo demonstrated the essence of duty and sacrifice in the face of adversity.
During the outing near Nsonji Lake, a friend encountered perilous waters and struggled to stay afloat. Without hesitation, Sep Shwensinlo jumped into the lake and successfully rescued his friend. However, during the rescue, his feet became entangled in weeds and mud on the lakebed, preventing him from saving himself.
