Rifleman Vikram Singh Negi

Rifleman Vikram Singh Negi hailed from Viman Gaon village in Tehri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand. Son of Shri Saab Singh Negi and Smt Birja Devi, he joined the army in the year 2016 at the age of 21 years. He was recruited into 17 Garhwal Rifles battalion of the Garhwal Rifles Regiment, an infantry Regiment known for its brave soldiers with a rich history of various battle honours.

 

After serving for few years, he got married to Ms Parvati and the couple had a son, born in the year 2020. Later Rfn Vikram Singh Negi was deputed to serve with 48 RR battalion, deployed in J&K for counter-insurgency operations. 

 

Poonch Operation: 14th Oct 2021

 

During Oct 2021, Rfn Vikram Singh Negi‘s unit 48 RR was deployed in Poonch district of J&K. The unit troops were engaged in operations against the terrorists on a regular basis as the unit's area of responsibility (AOR) was active with militancy. The LOC located near to its AOR, remained highly active and volatile with ceasefire violations occurring very often and without any warning. The area was also prone to infiltration, which necessitated regular armed patrols to check any infiltration from across the border. Following inputs from the intelligence sources about the presence of some terrorists, the security forces including the troops of 48 RR launched a search operation in Nar Khas forest area in Mendhar sector of Poonch’ district. Rfn Vikram Singh Negi was part of the team that launched the search and destroy operation. 

 

The assault team soon made contact with the terrorists, who fired at the troops on being challenged. A fierce gun battle followed thereafter with heavy exchange of fire. As he cordon around the terrorists was tightened, they started firing indiscriminately in a desperate attempt. During the heavy cross firing Rfn Vikram Singh Negi and Rfn Yogambar Singh received gun shots and got seriously injured. They later succumbed to their injuries and were martyred. Rfn Vikram Singh Negi was a committed and valiant soldier who laid down his life at the age of 26 years in the line of his duty.

 

Rfn Vikram Singh Negi is survived by father Shri Saab Singh Negi, mother Smt Birja Devi, wife Smt Parvati Devi and a son.
