Nagrota army base attack 2016:

 

He was one of the seven soldiers who were killed while fighting terrorists. On the morning of 29 November 2016 at around 5:30 IST, three terrorists wearing police uniforms entered the base which housed nearly 1,000 soldiers just about 20 kilometres from Jammu. They attacked the Indian Army’s 166 Field Regiment unit in the town of Nagrota, near Jammu city. The toughest part of the counter-terror operation was in preventing a potential hostage crisis. The terrorists had entered a part of the complex where families of soldiers lived and then slipped into different rooms.That placed at risk at least four unarmed officers, the wives of two officers and two babies. The process of extricating the women and children was extremely dangerous. The women used “household items” to block potential entry points in the living quarters. The militants divided themselves into two groups, entered the living quarters of the base and opened fire with AK-47s and grenades. In the resultant gun battle, all three militants were killed and the hostages were freed by the Indian Army.
