JALALABAD (Pajhwok): The remains of an Afghan National Army (ANA) soldier, Mohammad Omar who hugged a suicide bomber and rescued scores of other people, was laid to rest in Mehterlam, the capital of eastern Laghman province, on Monday.

While on duty in Jalalabad, the capital of neighboring Nangarhar province, Omar and his two colleagues were killed on Sunday when he hugged a suicide bomber and took him away.

Friend, colleagues and villagers, who attended Omar’s funeral in his ancestral village, said they were saddened over Omar’s death but felt proud over his bravery and sacrifice.

His elder brother Mohammad Haqyar said he would not cry on the martyrdom of his brother because he showed bravery.

Omar has two elder brothers, but his mother and two sisters were dependent on him but he is no more.

Omar’s mother said they were planning to arrange his wedding after Eid but Omar took this dream to his grave.

His sister said she fell unconscious after hearing her brother had died and cried all the night.
