POKHARA, Jan 13: Gorkha soldiers have long been known the world over for their valor and these khukuri-wielding warriors winning the British many a battle have become folklore.
A retired Indian Gorkha soldier recently revisited those glory days when he thwarted 40 robbers, killing three of them and injuring eight others, with his khukuri during a train journey. He is in line to receive three gallantry awards from the Indian government.
During the scuffle he received serious blade injury to his left hand while the girl also had a minor cut on her neck. They had carried out their robbery with swords, blades and pistols. The pistols may have been fake as they didn´t open fire, he surmised.
