Jagatsinghpur/Cuttack: The mortal remains of two Odia jawans-Prasanna Sahu and Manoj Behera- who were martyred in the worst-ever Pulwama terror attack on Thursday, will reach Bhubaneswar today.

The jawans will be paid homage at the Biju Patnaik International Airport from where they will be taken to their native places. The funeral of the martyrs will be conducted with full military honours.

According to sources, Union Ministers and Top Officials of the State Government will also be attending the funeral.

The mortal remains of the slain jawans, Prasanna Sahu and Manoj Behera will be consigned to the flames with full state honour at their respective native villages later in the day, sources said.

While the last rites of Sahu will be performed at Shikhar village under Nuagaon police limits of Jagatsinghpur district, the same would be carried out for Behera at his native Ratanpur village under Niali police limits in Cuttack district.

Meanwhile, hundreds of villagers have gathered to have the last glimpse of martyred jawans and pay their last respect to the departed soldiers of Odisha, who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.
