It was a proud moment for Sainik School in Kapurthala as its seven former students passed out from the Indian Military Academy in Dehradun today, with one of the newly-inducted Lieutenant getting a

Sword of Honour.

The seven boys are Lieutenants Tapeesh Gautam, Gurkamal S Sandhu, Ankit Alok, Amritpal Singh, Nitish Kumar, Harman Bajwa and Akashdeep Dhillon. Bajwa and Dhillon have been selected for the Special Forces. Lt Akashdeep Dhillon, who hails from Tarn Taran, brought more glory to the institute by becoming the recipient of the Sword of Honour.

Col Vikas Mohan, Principal of the school, said, "It is a matter of great honour that seven of our boys have passed out from the IMA today. The bigger achievement of the course is getting the Sword of Honour. It is after many years that a student from our school or even from Punjab got this honour."

MS Bajwa, teacher and parent of one of the passing-out cadets, said, "It was after a long time in 2016 that 10 students from a batch had got into the NDA. While seven of them joined the Army, Jasnoor Singh and Rishab Chandel joined the IAF Academy and Harkirat Singh went for naval training. So, it was a big day for us even though we as parents could not attend it."
