Op Rakshak: 01 Jan 2005
During 2005, Sep Pagar Sharad ‘s unit was deployed along the LOC in J&K for counter-insurgency operations. As the area of operation (AOP) of the unit was prone to infiltration by the militants from across the border, the unit had to maintain a high state of alert at all times. The unit launched regular patrols to monitor the suspicious movements. On 1st Jan 2005, Sep Pagar Sharad was part of one such armed patrol along the LOC. The patrol area also had very hostile weather conditions with many avalanche-prone areas. The patrol party of Sep Pagar Sharad had to face the brunt of one such avalanche on that day.
A horrific avalanche struck the patrol party when they were passing through one of the avalanche-prone areas along the path. Sep Pagar Sharad and his team members were taken by surprise and did not get any time to take any evasive action. Sep Pagar Sharad and few other soldiers got buried in tons of snow. A rescue operation was launched thereafter but Sep Pagar Sharad could not be saved.
Sep Pagar Sharad Pralhad was a valiant soldier who laid down his life in the line of his duty. He is survived by his wife Smt Bharti, daughter Tanuja and son Amol.
