Minty Agarwal Becomes First Woman Awardee Of Yudh Seva Medal
GUWAHATI: Squadron Leader Minty Agarwal, the woman fighter controller who played an instrumental role in alerting the Indian Air Force about Pakistan's attempt to intrude into India's airspace on February 27, conferred with the Yudh Seva Medal.
"From the time Wing Commander Abhinandan became airborne, I was the one who was providing him with the air situation picture. I saw the fading of F-16 blip from my screen," she told ANI, adding that he had launched the offensive on the enemy aircraft at the most appropriate time.
With this Agarwal became the first defence officer to get Yudh Seva Medal, which is awarded to recognise distinguished service of a high order during war, conflict or hostilities.
