Gunner Subodh Ghosh

Gunner Subodh Ghosh hailed from Raghunathpur village of Nadia district in West Bengal. He had an inclination to serve in the Army since his younger days. He eventually joined the Army in 2017 after completing his school education at the age of 19 years. He was recruited into 59 Med Regt of the Regiment of Artillery, an important combat arm of the Indian Army, well known for its booming field guns. After serving for two years, he got married to Ms. Anindita in Nov 2019 and the couple had a daughter in Aug 2020.

 

Cross-Border Firing (Uri Sector): 13 Nov 2020

 

During Nov 2020, Gnr Subodh Ghosh’s unit was deployed in Uri sector of J&K. The unit troops were manning the forward posts in the Uri sector along the LOC.  The LOC remained highly active and volatile with ceasefire violations occurring very often and without any warning. The year 2020 continued with ceasefire violations by Pak forces like previous years violating the 2003 ceasefire agreement despite repeated calls for restraint and adherence to the pact during flag meetings between the two sides. In yet another case of ceasefire violation, Pakistani troops opened unprovoked fire in multiple sectors including Dawar, Keran, Nowgaum and Uri sectors along the LOC on 13 Nov 2020.

 

On 13 Nov 2020, Pakistan Army troops initiated unprovoked firing on Indian posts from across the border in Uri Sector of Baramulla district. During that period, Gnr Subodh Ghosh was manning one of the forward posts along the Line of Control in the Uri sector. The Pakistani forces used mortars and other weapons during the firing. Indian army responded in a befitting manner to the Pakistani aggression and consequently, a heavy exchange of fire ensued thereafter, which continued intermittently for several hours. However during the heavy exchange of fire, Gnr Subodh Ghosh and his comrade Hav Hardhan Chandra received multiple splinter injuries. They were provided immediate medical aid and evacuated to nearest military medical facility for treatment. But unfortunately Hav Hardhan Chandra and Gnr Subodh Ghosh later succumbed to their injuries and were martyred. Gnr Subodh Ghosh  was a brave and dedicated soldier, who laid down his life in the line of his duty.

 

Gnr Subodh Ghosh is survived by his wife Smt Anindita Ghosh and a daughter.

    I deeply touched by the scarifies of those who lot their lives. It is beyond words and un compensable. Army is doing their jobs at the best. During my NCC days I too was part of Artillery Battery , i just a glimpsed of a life of an gunner. Well I could not be gunner ,but Seeing you I feel proud that I was associated some how with your battalion. My be in next life it will be my turn.
