Today, the wife of the Indian Army officer, Major Vibhuti Shankar Dhoundiyal, Nitika Kaul, got commissioned into the Indian Army. On Saturday, she passed out from the Officer’s Training Academy in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, and is now authorized as a Lieutenant in the Indian Army.
Union Minister Smriti Irani also tweeted to praise the newly commissioned officer. Major Vibhuti Dhoundiyal was a part of an operation in the Pinglang area of Pulwama and was one of the martyrs in the Pulwama attack that killed 40 CRPF soldiers.
Soon after her husband’s death, Nitika cleared the Short Service Commission Examination and started her training. The couple had got married in 2018, and within a year, she lost her husband. Nitika left her corporate job and joined the Army as a tribute to her late husband.
