Soldier Jagmeet Singh (23), a resident of Bartoli village of Ladwa in Kurukshetra, who died under mysterious circumstances at an Army camp in Ganderbal district of Central Kashmir, was cremated at his native village here today.

Jagmeet was posted with 24 RR Delta company. He had joined the Army five years ago. Pall of gloom descended on Bartoli village as the news of death spread in the village on Tuesday. Amid slogans of 'Bharat Mata ki Jai', mortal remains of Jagmeet were consigned to flames on Wednesday. The National flag was handed over to the family by the Army officials.

Kurukshetra MP Nayab Singh Saini, Ladwa MLA Mewa Singh, and district officials were present during his last rites.

Jagmeet's elder brother Harvinder Singh is also in the Army and posted in Punjab, while father Makhan Singh is a marginal farmer.

Bartoli village sarpanch Pawan Kumar said "Jagmeet is survived by his parents and a brother. His elder brother is also in the Army, and the financial condition of the family is also not good."

The SSP, Ganderbal, Khalil Poswal, said, "Soldier Jagmeet Singh allegedly committed suicide with his service weapon, but we have also started proceedings of suspicious death. The weapon is being sent to a forensic science laboratory. We are checking the circumstances under which he had committed suicide, and also checking if it was a case of fratricide. We are looking into all aspects and further action will be taken as

per the FSL report and medical report."
