Veera Jawan Baburao 'Posthumous' Award
Jawans commit their life to the defence of the country while serving in far-flung locations away from their families. Baburao, a native of Srikakulam's Vajrapukottur area, also joined the Assam Rifles at a young age. Baburao was instrumental in the capture of terrorists along the Arunachal Pradesh border. He was killed in a violent confrontation between terrorists and jawans there. Priya was married to Baburao eight months prior to this.
