Cross Border Firing : Poonch (17 July 2017)
During 2017 Naik Muddasar Ahmed’s unit 15 JAK LI was deployed in Poonch district of J&K. The unit troops were manning the forward posts in Rajouri sector along the LOC. The LOC remained highly active and volatile with ceasefire violations occurring very often and without any warning. Pakistan continued to violate the 2003 ceasefire agreement with India despite repeated calls for restraint and adherence to the pact during flag meetings between the two sides. Similarly the year 2017 too continued with ceasefire violations on regular intervals. In yet another case of ceasefire violation, Pakistani troops opened unprovoked fire in Rajouri sector along the LOC on 17 July 2017.
On 17 July 2017 at around 0730 hrs, Pakistan Army troops initiated unprovoked firing on Indian posts from across the border in Rajouri sector. During that period, Naik Muddasar Ahmed was manning one of the forward posts along the Line of Control. The Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire and resorted to heavy cross border shelling of various Indian Army posts and civilian areas. Pakistani firing and shelling covered Balakote, Panjgrian, Naika and Manjakote areas along the LOC in Rajouri sector. Indian army responded in a befitting manner to the Pakistani aggression and consequently, a heavy exchange of fire ensued thereafter, which continued intermittently for several hours. However, during this cross border shelling, one mortar shell fell on the bunker of Naik Muddasar Ahmed injuring him severely. He was given first aid and immediately evacuated to the military hospital for further treatment. However, Naik Muddasar Ahmed later succumbed to his injuries and was martyred. Naik Muddasar Ahmed was a brave and committed soldier who laid down his life in the line of his duty.
Naik Muddasar Ahmed is survived by his wife Smt Shaheena Muddasar and two children.
