Major Satish Dahiya SC

Major Satish Dhaiya hailed from  Narnaul in Mahendragarh district of Haryana. Major Dahiya completed his schooling from Uttar Pradesh and pursued higher studies from Rajasthan University. He had joined the army in 2008 and was commissioned into the Army Service Corps, the logistic supply arm of Indian Army.  After serving with his Corps for a couple of years Maj Dahiya was deputed to 30 RR battalion deployed in J & K area for counterinsurgency operations. While serving with 30 Rashtriya Rifles unit, Maj Dahiya participated in many counterinsurgency operations. He was a soldier at heart and an officer par excellence, who believed in leading from the front in an operation like a true military leader. 


Handwara Operation: 14 Feb 2017


On 14 Feb 2017, information was received from the intelligence sources about the presence of militants in Handwara area of J & K. After analyzing the specific inputs it was decided by the security forces to launch a joint operation of J & K police and army’s 30 RR unit to nab the militants. The joint team swung into action and the operation started around 5 PM in the evening of Feb 14, 2017. As per the intelligence inputs, the militants were holed up in a residential building and the joint team threw a cordon around the suspected area.


On being challenged by the troops, the terrorists opened fire at them from their hideout. A fierce gun battle followed lasting several hours. Major Satish Dahiya was leading the operation, tactically moving his troops to close all escape routes for the militants. The militants in sheer desperation resorted to indiscriminate and heavy firing against the troops. During the exchange of fire, Major  Dahiya and three soldiers sustained serious injuries. However, Major  Dahiya continued firing and ensured that all four terrorists were neutralized before he was evacuated to the hospital. Major Dahiya later succumbed to his injuries in the hospital and was martyred. The gallantry award, “Shaurya Chakra” winner, Major  Dahiya was the epitome of courage and fighting spirit who laid down his life in the service of the nation.


Major Sathish Dahiya is survived by his wife Sujata Dahiya and daughter Priya.

    चंद दिन की ज़िन्दगानी
    क्यों झग़डों की राह हैं!
    कुछ साथ है -कुछ पास है
    कुछ अहसान है -किसी का इन्तजार है
    वो चले गए (जो शहीद हूये ) –
    हम बह रहे हैं
    दरिया अधीर मन को विचलित करे हैं!
    रह- रह के लहर डूबोये हैं
    जीवन का ये अग्नि पथ
    मूझे फिर संकल्प याद दिलाये हैं
    एक बार मिला ये मानुष चोला
    क्यों डर -डर के घबराये हैं
    सर उठा
    अठाहश कर
    पथ पकड कर
    आगे बढ़
    माना बहुत खोया हैं -कम पाया है
    पर तेरा वजूद बनेगा,- कर सपत
    मरना तो सत्य है ,पर –
    कर्म अपना अटल कर
    भगत सिंह या मेजर सतीश दहीया ना सही
    पर ऊठ खडा हो बजे गान जब
    राष्ट्र का सम्मान कर
    इस धरा- वसुंधरा को नमन कर
    अजय श्री गूनगान करे हैं कि–
    अगले जन्म फिर से मिलु
    वचन प्रतिबंध
    अचल सिंह दहिया का सपूत
    शौर्य चक्र शहीद मेजर सतीश दहीया
    बनीहाडी कुमार
    Love u mejar
    We miss you

    अजीब सी जंग छिड़ी है तेरी यादों से
    आँखे कहती है सोने दे दिल कहता है रोने दे
