The Pakistan Army paid homage to a captain who was killed during the Kargil conflict in 1999 at a ceremony in the North West Frontier Province.

The army held a special ceremony at the grave of Captain Karnail Sher Khan at his native town Karnail Sher Khan Kili on Monday as part of commemorative ceremonies in connection with Defence Day, which was observed all over Pakistan in memory of the defence personnel killed since the 1965 Indo-Pak war, the official APP news agency reported on Tuesday.
