Naik Gurcharan Singh

Naik Gurcharan Singh hailed from Gurdaspur district in Punjab, Son of an army veteran Shri Salvinder Sing.

Ceasefire Violation Manjakot Sector (Rajouri) : 10 Jun 2020

 

During 2020, Nk Gurcharan Singh’s unit 14 Punjab was deployed in Rajouri district of J&K along the LOC. The LOC in that sector was very volatile and active where the enemy forces often resorted to unprovoked firing. Besides manning various posts, the area was monitored and guarded by the security forces by employing armed patrols on a continuous basis. On 10 Jun 2020, Pakistani forces indulged in ceasefire violation and resorted to unprovoked firing. It was probably an attempt to provide cover fire to infiltrators sneaking from across the border. On that day, Nk Gurcharan Singh and his comrades were manning the forward posts in Rajouri district  along the LOC. Indian army initiated a befitting reply resulting in a prolonged cross border exchange of fire.

 

However, during the exchange of fire, Nk Gurcharan Singh got seriously injured and was shifted to the Army medical facility for the treatment. However he later succumbed to his injuries and was martyred. Nk Gurcharan Singh was a valiant soldier who laid down his life at the age of 29-years in the line of his duty following the highest traditions of the Indian army.

 

Nk Gurcharan Singh is survived by his father, Shri Salvinder Sing, wife Smt Ranjit Kaur and son Agamjot Singh.
