Ladakh boy honoured by Indo-Tibetan Border Police after his salute video wins hearts on internet

The Indo-Tibetan Border Police honoured 5-year-old Nawang Namgyal from Ladakh for his act that won millions of hearts.

A video of Nawang Namgyal saluting Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) soldiers in Ladakh was widely shared on social media. The 5-year-old boy became an internet sensation in October after the ITBP shared a video of him saluting jawans passing in a convoy.

ITBP have now honoured him with a custom made uniform and filmed him doing drill at the camp. A school teacher's son, Nawang Namgyal, is a lower kindergarten student in one of the border villages in Ladakh's Chushul area. Watch the video.
