The body of Flight Lieutenant S. Muhilan piloting the helicopter shot down along with three other ranks has still not been recovered. Muhilan also leaves behind his wife and a two-year-old son.
The IAF said Flight Lieutenant Muhilan, killed in action when his helicopter was downed by a surface-to- air missile, was engaged in attempts to dislodge the intruders from their missile fortified positions. The young officer from
Karnataka's Belgaum district "made the supreme sacrifice during the air-to-ground rocket attack against a heavily missile- defended area,'' said the IAF. An experienced helicopter pilot, he has flown both the MI-8 and MI-17 choppers. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Bina Muhilan, and son Dhruv.
