Naik Rambeer singh Tomar AC

Naik Rambeer Singh Tomar was born on 15 August 1970, in the family of Shri Rajendra Singh Tomar and Urmila Devi in a small village in Uttar Pradesh. He had one younger sister and a brother, who too joined the Indian Army. On 28 July 1989, Naik Rambeer was recruited into the 15th Battalion of the Kumaon Regiment, a regiment known for its gallant soldiers and numerous battle honours. After serving for few years with his parent unit, Naik Rambeer was later deputed to 26 Rashtriya Rifles, deployed in J & K for counter insurgency operations.

 

Doda Operation: 03 Mar 2002

 

On March 3rd 2002, Nk Rambeer Singh’s unit received information about the presence of terrorists in a house in a village in Doda district which was located in  its area of responsibility. A decision was taken by the security forces to launch a quick and well coordinated operation to flush out the terrorists. The assault team which Naik Rambeer Singh was part of, swung into action and set out to cordon off the suspected area. The terrorists on being surrounded and challenged opened fire at the troops. This resulted in a gun battle where the terrorists were firing from the safe locations inside the building.

 

It was then decided to storm the building in a search and destroy operation to neutralize the hiding terrorists. Naik Rambeer  volunteered to lead the team to storm the house. He displayed agility and unparalleled courage while entering the house and lobbed a grenade killing two terrorists on the spot. The third terrorist charged at Naik Rambeer and in a fierce hand to hand combat, he overpowered the terrorist and shot him dead. Sensing presence of more terrorists in the adjacent room and danger to his buddy, Naik Rambeer stormed the room in a daredevil action.

 

However during the exchange of fire, Naik Rambeer was shot in his eye by the terrorist hiding in the room. Despite bleeding profusely Naik Rambeer displaying outstanding bravery threw a grenade and killed the fourth terrorist too. Naik Rambeer got severely injured during the operation and later succumbed to his injuries. Naik Rambeer single-handedly killed four terrorists and played a key role in successful completion of the operation wherein all the terrorists were neutralized. Naik Rambeer Singh was given the nation’s highest peace time gallantry award, “Ashok Chakra” for displaying most conspicuous bravery, inspiring leadership and unyielding fighting spirit in the face of the enemy.

 
Naik Rambeer Singh Tomar is survived by his parents,wife and two sons.
