The state government, at Patna Airport on Saturday, accorded the guard of honor to the Indian Air Force Squadron Leader Priye Sharma whose body was brought to Patna in a special aircraft following his tragic death at the Yelahanka Air Force base in Bangalore on Friday.
The 32-year-old Air Force ace was killed when the advanced light helicopter Dhruv crashed near the runway after developing technical difficulties.
Sharma's body that was kept in a casket was later taken to his ancestral village in Maranchi where he was cremated amidst the presence of his family members, friends, and other grieving citizens.
Sharma, the elder of the two sons of Radheshyam Sharma, is survived by his wife Reena, an ex-airline stewardess, and his 8-year old daughter Sunishka, besides other family members.
