During 2021, L/Nk Jasbir Singh’s unit 19 RR battalion was deployed in the Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir and was engaged in operations against the militants on a regular basis. On the night of 30/31 Dec 2021, there was an attempt by the militants from across the border to sneak into the valley in the Nowgam sector about 100 kms from Srinagar. The troops of 19 RR battalion were already on high alert as the intelligence sources had informed the security forces about such possible attempts along the LOC. On getting specific intelligence, the troops of 19 RR battalion launched a search and cordon operation in the suspected area in its AOR(Area of Responsibility).

He was later shifted to the hospital, where he  succumbed to his injuries and was martyred on 01 Jan 2022.  L/Nk Jasbir Singh was a valiant and dedicated soldier, who at the young age of 26 years, laid down his life in the service of the nation.
