LoC Firing(Krishna Ghati Sector) : 20 Jan 2018

 

The Krishna Ghati sector in Poonch district of J & K along the LoC is very volatile as the Pakistan troops resort to cross border firing very often in this area. During Jan 2018, Sepoy Mandeep Singh’s unit was deployed in this sector and its troops were manning various forward posts along the LoC. On 20 Jan 2018, Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control in Krishna Ghati sector and resorted to heavy mortar shelling of various  Indian Army posts and civilian areas. Pakistani Army initiated indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics, 82 mm and 120 mm mortars since morning hours on that day.

 

The Indian forces gave a befitting reply to the unprovoked firing and consequently the exchange of fire continued for several hours. During the heavy exchange of fire Sepoy Mandeep Singh manning one of the forward posts got severely injured. He later succumbed to his injuries and was martyred. The 23 year old Sepoy Mandeep Singh was posted to J & K area after his initial training and served there for the next two and half years till the end. Sepoy Mandeep Singh was a disciplined and committed soldier who laid down his life in the service of the nation.

 

Sepoy Mandeep Singh is survived by his parents and brother and a sister.
