LOC Firing(Tangdhar Sector) : 13 Aug 2018
During 2018, Sepoy Pushpendra Singh’s unit was deployed in Tangdhar sector of North Kashmir in Kupwara district along the LOC. India shares a 3,323-km border with Pakistan, of which 221 km of the IB and 740 km of the LOC fall in Jammu and Kashmir. The LOC is highly active and volatile where cease fire violations occur very often. On 13th Aug, 2018 Pakistani troops violated the cease fire and started heavy mortar shelling on Indian Army Posts. Indian Army retaliated strongly, effectively and appropriately to the unprovoked ceasefire violation and the exchange of fire continued for several hours.
During the heavy exchange of fire, two Pakistani soldiers were gunned down and Sep Pushpendra Singh too got severely injured. Sep Pushpendra Singh was rushed immediately to 92 Base hospital in Srinagar but he later succumbed to his injuries and was martyred. Sep Pushpendra Singh was a disciplined and committed soldier who laid down his life in the service of the nation.
Sepoy Pushpendra Singh is survived by his wife Sudha, son Siddharath and parents.
