LOC Firing(Sunderbani Sector): 17th April 2018

 

The border between India and Pakistan spans about 3000 kilometers and out of this some 740 kilometers of the Line of Control (LOC) falls in Jammu & Kashmir. The LOC is a highly active and volatile zone, where ceasefire violations occur very frequently. In 2017 alone, 860 ceasefire violations took place along the LOC and 111 incidents were noted on the international border, claiming the lives of several security personnel. In the year 2018, 633 ceasefire violations were recorded along the LOC and the International Border in Jammu & Kashmir in just the first two months of 2018. Of these 432 incidents were reported from the Line of Control and 201 on the international border. One more such ceasefire violation took place on 17 Apr 2018 in Rajouri district of j & K.

 

On 17 April 2018, Pakistani troops initiated unprovoked firing on Indian posts from across the border in the Sunderbani sector in Rajouri district. Pakistani soldiers violated the ceasefire and resorted to unprovoked firing using small arms, automatics and mortars. Hav Charanjeet Singh’s unit was manning the forward posts in that sector. The Indian forces deployed at the posts retaliated forcefully and a fierce exchange of fire continued for several hours. During the exchange of fire Hav Charanjeet was grievously injured with bullets wounds. He was immediately shifted to the Military hospital at Jammu Army base and was given intensive medical care. However he later succumbed to his injuries and was martyred on 20 April 2018.

 

Hav Charanjeet Singh was a valiant and dedicated soldier who laid down his life in the service of the nation. He is survived by his wife, Neelam Kumari, and two daughters.
