Terrorist attack: 26 Sep 2013

 

During  September 2013, Lt Col Bikramjeet’s unit was deployed in Samba district of the trouble-torn J&K. On 26 Sep 2016, the Officers’ Mess Complex of his unit was attacked by a group of heavily armed terrorists.  At around 7.10 am, Lt Col Bikramjit Singh on hearing the sound of weapons near the Officers’ Mess Complex, rushed to the site. He spotted terrorist hiding in a nullah, firing and attempting to move towards the adjacent family accommodation. Despite the presence of many armed terrorists, Lt Col Bikramjeet moved from one position to another, shouting instructions and directing the action.  His prompt and fearless action dislodged the terrorist from an effective firing position, forcing the terrorist to seek cover in a room, leading to his eventual elimination.

 

Lt Col Bikramjeet by his courageous and prompt action prevented the terrorists from going towards Officers’ Married Accommodation Complex. However, while moving from one position to another, he exposed himself and received gunshots in his stomach. He later succumbed to his injuries and was martyred. Lt Col Bikramjeet displayed exemplary courage and leadership during the operation and saved many precious lives of his fellow soldiers and their families. Lt Col Bikramjit was a valiant soldier and a gritty officer who displayed a very high order of devotion to duty when the situation demanded. Lt Col Bikramjit was given the gallantry award  ” Shaurya Chakra”. for his outstanding bravery leadership and supreme sacrifice.

 

Lt Col Bikramjit Singh is survived by his father  Major Paramjit Singh (retd), mother Smt Luvpreet Kaur, wife Smt Navneet Kaur, daughter Ramneet and sister Neetu.
