Machhil Sector Avalanche: 13 Jan 2020
During 2019-20, Sep Chandrabhan was serving with 45 RR Bn deployed in the Kupwara district of J&K. The AOR (Area Of Responsibility) of the Battalion 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. Sep Chandrabhan 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. Sep Chandrabhan 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, Sep Chandrabhan and three of his fellow soldiers, Nk Rameshwar Lal, Gnr Ranjit Singh and Nk Purushottam could not be saved and were martyred. Sep Chandrabhan was a dedicated and valiant soldier who laid down his life at the age of 27 years in the line of his duty.
