Lt Triveni, after graduating from the Punjab Agriculture University, Ludhiana, joined the Indian Military Academy in Dehradun and passed out on 08 Dec 2001 as a proud Lieutenant.


Lt Triveni Singh was commissioned into 5 JAK LI battalion of the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry an elite regiment known for its gallantry and various battle honours.

Jammu Terrorist Attack: 02 Jan 2004


On the evening of 02 January, 2004 the Lt Triveni Singh’s unit received information about the terrorist attack on Jammu railway station. The commanding officer of the unit instructed Lt. Triveni Singh to inform all officers and prepare for action. Realizing the gravity of the situation and urgency Lt Triveni Singh sought permission to go to the railway station himself as leader of the quick reaction team of commandos.


On reaching the railway station Lt Triveni Singh realized that the terrorists had already attacked and killed 7 civilians. Lt Triveni Singh immediately swung into action and ordered his troops to cordon off the station. In a swift action Lt Triveni Singh killed the first militant and followed the other, who was firing from the overhead rail bridge. Lt Triveni Singh knew that the militant was equipped with lethal weapons and could kill over 300 passengers, who were in the parcel room. In a daring action Lt Triveni Singh succeeded in killing the second militant too thereby averting a grave danger to the lives of innocent civilians.


However during the exchange of fire, Lt Triveni Singh got severely injured and was martyred. For his extraordinary gallantry, unyielding fighting spirit and  selfless act of supreme sacrifice, Lt Triveni Singh was given the nation’s highest peace time gallantry award “Ashok Chakra”.


Lt Triveni Singh is survived by his father Capt Janmej Singh Thakur(Retd) & mother Smt Pushplata.

    I played on Triveni’s shoulders when i was a kid in P.A.U. ludhiana grounds.
    He was always a very caring and loving older brother.
    Your ultimate sacrifice is remembered in your hostel, college and play grounds of PAU. May we meet again in another life.

    Today 2 January ,2021 I feel myself fortunate to remember You in all my esteems. On this day in 2004 You make ‘the contribution that a human being can ever made’ i.e. You made your supreme sacrifice for those whom You even did not know personally but yes… You gave Your life for just being in the relation of “Indian blood” . It is incorrect to say that God has never landed on earth in 21st century because I saw the God , LT. TRIVENI SINGH. But not for much time You stayed on this earth .In fact there would have been a party organized on your arrival in heaven as everyone there was going to get an Hero entering their company. Your ‘Balidan’ is beyond any comparison. Even the words would have been feeling themselves unworthy and mere in front of such a great personality. Though I was not able to meet You in this birth but I am very sure that I will meet You in the very next birth. I promise You to meet You soon…………….JAI HIND
