LoC Firing Poonch Sector: 7th Nov 2016  

 

During 2016, Sepoy Gurusewak Singh’s unit was deployed in the Line of Control in Poonch Sector of J &K.  India shares around 3000 KM border with Pakistan in which 740 Km of LoC falls in Jammu & Kashmir. The LOC is highly active and volatile where cross-border firing occurs very often.

 

On 6th November the alert and vigilant troops of the Army observed some suspicious movements around midnight and challenged the infiltrating terrorists. The terrorists opened fire and tried sneaking back towards the Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) side of LoC. In the ensuing firefight Sepoy Gurusewak Singh and one more soldier  suffered gunshot wound and succumbed to their injuries while being evacuated next day. The 24 years old Sepoy Gurusewak singh laid down his life in the service of the nation.

Sepoy Gurusewak Singh is survived by his father Balwinder Singh, mother Baljit Kaur and elder brother Jasbir Singh
