    He is my father and here is more information about him:

    On the day of February 23, 1998 a specific intelligence was received that some terrorists are hiding in the Saloor village of Srinagar with an intention to plot explosives on the way of a convoy of VIPs passing through that route.
    On the same night around 2100h , Sofi Mohalla of that village was cordoned by the army. The next day at 1100h in the morning while searching the last house of the locality Nayak Urba Datt noticed some suspicious movement in the heap of hay on the rooftop. He immediately fired however the terrorists jumped off the rooftop into the nala and ran towards the jungle of Nambal. To this, Nayak Urba Dutt too jumped on the nala and chased the terrorists with a daunting spirit. Despite being severely injured, he gunned down one militant and wounded another militant who succumbed to his injuries later on. This brave soilder also succumbed to his injuries and got martyred.

    Naik Urba Datt displayed indomitable courage and exemplary valor and laid down his supreme sacrifice on the line of duty for the nation.
