In this war, more than 527 brave warriors of India also got martyrdom.
In the battle of Kargil, Pakistani soldiers were on the hill and Indian soldiers won this battle by climbing the hill from below, which was a very difficult challenge according to the circumstances of the war. Kargil martyrs were remembered and tributes were paid.
