Naik Rajendra Singh Bhati SM

Naik Rajendra Singh Bhati was born on 24th Dec 1992 and hailed from Mohangarh in the Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan. Son of an army veteran Late Hav Sawal Singh Bhati and Smt Nain Kanwar Rathore, Nk Rajendra Singh had two brothers Shri Samunder Singh & Shri Govind Singh. Coming from a military family, Nk Rajendra Singh always wanted to don the army uniform right from his younger days. Eventually, after completing his school education he joined the army on 1st Jan 2013 at the age of 21 years and was recruited into the 15 Rajput Battalion of the Rajput Regiment, an infantry Regiment known for its valour and battle honours in various operations


After serving for few years, Nk Rajendra Singh got married to Ms. Jamna Kanwar.  After completing his training Nk Rajendra Singh served with his parent unit for some years and later he was deputed to serve with 23 RR Bn deployed in the Kashmir valley.


Ramban Operation: 28 Sept 2019


During Sept 2019, Nk Rajendra Singh’s unit, 23 RR was deployed in the Ramban district of J&K for counter-insurgency operations. The AOR ( Area Of Responsibility) of the battalion was the hotbed of militant activity and the troops had to be on guard at all times. The unit was engaged in operations against the militants on a regular basis. Based on the information about the presence of a few terrorists in the general area of Batote, the unit decided to launch an operation with its QRT(Quick Reaction Team). Nk Rajendra Singh was part of the QRT that was tasked to undertake the operation. The QRT as planned reached the suspected area and soon made contact with the terrorists.


A gun battle followed thereafter but the armed militants managed to escape from the spot at Kundrala, nine kilometers away from Batote. After a hot chase, they entered the house and took the owner as a hostage. A joint operation was then launched with the elements of J&K police, Army, CISF, and CRPF. The repeated attempts of the security forces to make the terrorists surrender failed as they were trying to buy time to flee the house taking advantage of darkness later in the day. When the security forces tightened the cordon, the militants in a desperate attempt started firing indiscriminately to break the cordon and flee. But Nk Rajendra Singh and the team engaged the militants and succeeded and eliminated them. However, during the exchange of fire Nk Rajendra Singh got seriously injured and later succumbed to his injuries.


Nk Rajendra Singh Bhati was a valiant and committed soldier who laid down his life at the age of 27 years in the line of his duty. He was given the gallantry award “Sena Medal” (posthumous) for his exceptional courage, devotion to duty, and supreme sacrifice.


Nk Rajendra Singh Bhati is survived by his mother Smt Smt Nain Kanwar Rathore, wife Smt Jamna Kanwar, a daughter and two brothers Shri Samunder Singh & Shri Govind Singh.

    o Smt Jamna Kanwar, Bhupendra Singh, Shri Samunder Singh & Shri Govind Singh.,
    I salute to your husband/Father/Brother Rajendra Singh for his supreme sacrifice for nation. He was of only 23 years of age when he led his life for nation. Nation will be always indebted for his act of bravery. My elder brother Hav Dipak Patil was in same unit at same tenure in 23 RR. He was also with him during that operation -Trishakti at batote. As my brother said Rajendra was in second cordon and fought bravely during that gunfire in operation. I pray to god to give you strength to overcome the grief of losing Rajendra. He will always be there in our memories forever. I knows what filmily of soldier undergoes during the service of soldier. Family also goes through a journey of battle of emotions. I look forward to meet you whenever i would be at Rajasthan.
    शत शत नमन.

    शत शत नमन हर वीर को जो भय को भी दे मात हरदम,
    शत शत नमन हर वीर को जो है डटा दिन रात हरदम,
    शत शत नमन है वीरता को जो है परे हर बंधनों से,
    शत शत नमन हर वीर को जो है दूर अपने परिजनों से,
