Nowgam Operation : 29 July 2016
Sepoy Vishal Chaudhary was serving with 61 Rashtriya Riffles in 2016, which was engaged in various anti-militancy operations in militant infested areas of J & K. On the night of 29th July 2016, there was an attempt to sneak into the valley by the militants in the Nowgam sector about 120 kms from Srinagar. The troops of 61 RR were already alert as the intelligence reports had informed about such possible attempts along the LOC. At around 3 AM in the morning Sepoy Vishal Chaudhary, who was part of the Op Danger Point team which was entrusted to flush out the infiltrator, had gone and intercepted the militants trying to infiltrate.
On being challenged, the militants fired at the troops and a fierce gun-battle ensued. During the operation Sep Vishal got severely injured by the exchange of fire. Unmindful of his injuries, Sepoy Vishal continued to fire at the terrorists and killed one terrorist on the spot. He was later shifted to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries and made supreme sacrifice in the service to the country.
Sepoy Vishal Chaudhary is survived by his wife Madhu Singh, two daughters and a son.
