Havaldar Nimb Singh Rawat

Hav Nimb Singh Rawat hailed from Rajsamand district in Rajasthan. He belonged to 6 Bihar Regiment and was among the 19 brave hearts who laid down their lives in the line of duty in September 2016 when Pakistani terrorists struck the Army’s Administrative base in Uri sector of J & K.

 

Uri Attack : 18 Sep 2016

 

He was one of the 19 soldiers who was martyred in Uri Attack in Sep 2016.  At around 5:30 a.m. on 18 September, four militants attacked an Indian Army brigade headquarters in Uri, near the Line of Control in a pre-dawn ambush. They lobbed 17 grenades in three minutes followed by indiscriminate firing by automatic weapons. As a rear administrative base camp, the HQs had a fuel storage facility, which caught fire along with tents with soldiers sleeping in them. As a result of this dastardly attack, 17 army personnel were martyred. A gun battle ensued that lasted for six hours, during which all the four militants were killed. An additional 19-30 soldiers were also reported to have been injured in the attack. Most of the soldiers martyred were from the 10 Dogra and 6 Bihar regiments. One of the injured soldiers succumbed to his injuries on 19 September at R&R Hospital in New Delhi, followed by another soldier on 24 September, bringing the death toll to 19. The nation will remain grateful to this brave soldier for his courage and supreme sacrifice.

 

Hav Nimb Singh Rawat is survived by wife Smt Rodi Devi, daughters Asha, Deepa, Nisha, Payal and son Chandan.
