Hav Hardhan Chandra Roy

Hav Hardhan Chandra Roy hailed from Phutukibari-Medhipara tehsil of Dhubri district in Assam. Son of Shri Tankeshwar Roy and Smt Anima Roy, Hav Hardhan Chandra  had three sisters as siblings. Born in the year 1982, he had inclination to serve in the Army since his younger days. He eventually joined the Army 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.

 

After serving for few years, he got married to Ms Bokul and the couple had a son in the year 2018. By the year 2020, he had been promoted to the rank of Havaldar and had developed into a battle-hardened soldier and a very dependable non commissioned officer. He had served in various operational areas by then and gathered substantial field experience.

 

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

 

During Nov 2020, Hav Hardhan Chandra’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, Hav Hardhan Chandra 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, Hav Hardhan Chandra and his comrade Gunner Subodh Ghosh 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. Hav Hardhan Chandra was a valiant soldier and a committed NCO, who laid down his life in the line of his duty.

 

Hav Hardhan Chandra is survived by his father Shri Tankeshwar Roy, mother Smt Anima Roy, wife Smt Bokul Roy and son.
