Machhil Sector Avalanche: 13 Jan 2020
During 2019-20, Nk Rameshwar was serving with 45 RR Bn deployed in the Kupwara district of J&K. The AOR (Area Of Responsibility) of the Bn ran along the LOC which was also prone to infiltration from across the border. Besides undertaking planned counter-insurgency and counter-infiltration operations, the unit launched regular armed patrols to monitor its area. Nk Rameshwar was part of one such patrol on 13th Jan 2020 in Machhil Sector. The designated route of the patrol passed through the rugged area and was also prone to avalanches. As the patrol was traversing through the assigned route, it was struck by a horrific avalanche.
The avalanche took the soldiers by surprise and did not give them enough time to react. Nk Purushottam and his comrades got swept away and buried under tons of snow. A rescue operation was launched by the army on a war footing. Though the rescue operation got hampered by the implement weather, the team managed to extricate a few of the buried soldiers. However, Nk Rameshwar and three of his fellow soldiers, Nk Purushottam, Gnr Ranjit Singh and Sep Chandrabhan Chaurasla could not be saved and were martyred.
Nk Rameshwar Lal Chaudhary was a dedicated and valiant soldier who laid down his life in the line of his duty. He is survived by his wife Smt. Sumitra Devi, son Ajay and a daughter Kruti.
