Siachen Glacier: 16 Dec 2016
During 2016, Gdr Dungar Ram‘s unit was deployed in the Siachen Glacier in J & K. The unit was deployed in Saltoro ridge in Siachen glacier in Ladakh region of Jammu & Kashmir. Siachen is the second longest glacier in the world and is known as the world’s highest battleground, situated at an altitude of 5,700 meters. The extreme low temperatures – which can drop to minus 60 degrees Celsius during winter – has claimed hundreds of lives since 1984, when India and Pakistan stationed their troops on the Glacier. The soldiers at the Saltoro ridge located about 20 Kms north west of Siachen have to fight not only the treacherous enemy but the extreme hostile weather too on a daily basis.
On 16th Dec 2016, Gdr Dungar Ram was on a patrol duty traversing through harsh icy terrain when he became a victim of unforgiving weather conditions. Due to prolonged exposure to very cold temperature conditions, Gdr Dungar Ram developed serious breathing problem and had to be given emergency medical care. However his condition deteriorated and despite battling valiantly, he lost his life and was martyred. Gdr Dungar Ram was a gallant and dedicated soldier who laid down his life at the age of 21 years, in the line of his duty.
Gdr Dungar Ram Mundan is survived by his father Shri Anadaram Jat, wife Hawa Devi, son Dileep and brother Shri Ramdeen.
