19 Days After Crash, IAF MiG-29 Pilot Declared Dead
Squadron Leader Dharmendra Singh Tomar, who went down in a MiG-29 on October 18, is dead. Sources tell Headlines Today that body parts were found today at the crash site in the Chokhang Mountains in Lahaul-Spiti, Himachal Pradesh. Hope had always been bleak a couple of days after the crash, considering the terrain he went down in. Since the crash, I’ve gotten to know several of Sqn Ldr Tomar’s friends, coursemates and seniors in the IAF. Heartfelt condolences to his family. R.I.P.
