During June 2002, L/Nk Dharamveer Singh’s unit was deployed in a terrorist infected area of J&K. Consequently, the unit troops had to undertake operations against the terrorists on a regular basis. Based on the intelligence reports about the presence of few hardcore terrorists in the AOR (Area Of responsibility) of 43 RR Battalion, a decision was taken by the battalion to launch an operation on 28th Jun 2002. L/Nk Dharamveer Singh was selected to be part of the team that was tasked to undertake the operation.
As planned, L/Nk Dharamveer Singh along with his comrades reached the suspected area in Chhund sector and launched a search and cordon operation. The team soon made contact with the terrorists and a fierce gun battle followed thereafter. During the exchange of fire, L/Nk Dharamveer Singh got injured seriously. He later succumbed to his injuries and was martyred. L/Nk Dharamveer Singh was a brave and determined soldier, who laid down his life at the age of 24 years in the line of his duty.
