Uri Attack: 18 Sep 2016
 

At around 5:30 a.m. on 18 September, four militants attacked the Indian Army brigade headquarters in Uri, near the Line of Control in a pre-dawn ambush. They lobbed 17 grenades in three minutes followed by indiscriminate firing by automatic weapons. As a rear administrative base camp, the HQs had fuel storage facility which caught fire along with tents with soldiers sleeping in them. As a result of this dastardly attack, 19 army personnel were martyred.

 

A gun battle ensued that lasted for six hours, during which all the four militants were killed. An additional 19-30 soldiers were also reported to be injured in the attack. Most of the soldiers martyred were from the 10 Dogra and 6 Bihar regiments. Sepoy Vikas Janardhan, who suffered bullet injuries in the attack, succumbed to his injuries at  R&R Hospital, New Delhi. Sepoy Vikas Janardhan laid down his life in keeping the border of motherland safe and secured from the enemy.

 

The nation will remain grateful to Sepoy Vikas Janardhan for his supreme sacrifice.
