Rifleman Rabin Sharma SM

Rifleman Rabin Sharma  hailed from Chuwa village in Parbat district of Nepal. Rfn Rabin Sharma joined the Army after completing his school education, in the year 2013 and was recruited into 4/1 GR battalion of 1 Gorkha Rifles Regiment, an infantry regiment well known for its brave soldiers and numerous operations.


Kupwara Operation: May 20th, 2017


During May 2017, Rfn Rabin Sharma’s unit was deployed in Kupwara district of J&K. The unit was manning the forward posts along the LOC in Kupwara district and had to keep a strict vigil at all times as the area was also prone to infiltration from across the border. On 20th May 2017, there was another such attempt by the militants to infiltrate in the AOR(Area of Responsibility) of 4/1 GR. As the militants tried to infiltrate in Naugam sector of Handwara in Kupwara district, Rfn Rabin Sharma and his soldiers detected the movement and intercepted them. A fierce gun-battle followed thereafter lasting several hours.


The militants were heavily armed and were trying to take advantage of thick jungle and rugged terrain. The exchange of fire continued for 36 hours in which Hav Damar Bahadur and his comrades managed to eliminate 4 militants. However during this operation, Rfn Rabin Sharma along with 2 other soldiers Hav Giris Gurung and Hav Damar Bahadur got seriously injured. They later succumbed to their injuries and were martyred. Rfn Rabin Sharma was a valiant and committed soldier who laid down his life in the line of his duty. Rfn Rabin Sharma was given the gallantry award, “Sena Medal” for his courage, devotion to duty and supreme sacrifice.


Rfn Rabin Sharma is survived by his wife Smt Sabita Sharma.
