Hav Kaushal Kumar

Havildar Kaushal Kumar hailed from Deeng village of  Nowshera Tehsil in Rajouri district of Jammu & Kashmir. He was recruited into 8 JAK LI of the well known Jammu & Kashmir Light Infantry Regiment, a regiment widely respected for its intrepid soldiers and numerous battle exploits.


Sunderbani Sector Operation: 21 Oct 2018


During 2018, Hav Kaushal Kumar ‘s unit of J & K Light Infantry was deployed in the Sunderbani sector of J & K along the LOC. India shares a 3,323-km border with Pakistan, of which 221 km of the IB and 740 km of the LOC fall in Jammu and Kashmir. The LOC is highly active and volatile where ceasefire violations occur very often and without any warning. It is also used by the terrorists for infiltration with the connivance of Pakistani security forces. The infiltration by the terrorists is invariably attempted under the cover of artillery fire or with the help of Border Action Team(BAT), which includes soldiers of special forces of the Pakistan Army. On On 21 Oct 2018, the Border Action Team (BAT), along with some militants, carried out an attack on ‘Area Domination Patrol’ of 8 JAK LI.  Hav Kaushal Kumar was part of the patrol which came under that unprovoked attack.
The Indian Army retaliated and a fierce gun-battle ensued thereafter. Two intruders from the attackers were eliminated during the operation and warlike stores were recovered. However, during the exchange of fire,  Hav Kaushal Kumar,  Lance Naik Ranjeet Singh and Rifleman  Rajat Kumar got seriously injured and were rushed to the hospital. However, all the three brave-hearts later succumbed to their injuries and were martyred. Hav Kaushal Kumar was a valiant and dedicated soldier who laid down his life in the service of the nation at the age of 38 years.

Hav Kaushal Kumar is survived by his wife Smt Naresh Kumari.
