    Major Milton V Kurien (5 Sikh)

    Major Milton Kurien's final homecoming on Tuesday was a sombre, dignified affair, complete with military honours, as befitting one who had died for his country. At the Nedumbassery international airport, the coffin, draped in the national Tricolour, was borne down from the aircraft by six Naval officers, clad in their crispest whites.

Over the years, they had initiated a number of measures to commemorate the martyr, Ms. Bharathi Kumar said, adding that Lt. Parthiban's tale of heroism and sacrifice was unparalleled.

    Lt. Parthiban, son of Major (retired) V.Natarajan and Tamil Selvi was honoured posthumously with Kirthi Chakra. The Fitness Centre inside OTA was named after him, in his memory, his close friends said, adding that he was responsible for large number of young men and women from Tamil Nadu to join the Armed Forces.

    PS: I knew him.

    Suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists killed the 29-year-old major in an ambush during the counter-insurgency Operation Rakshak at Sumblar village in the Bandipora region of the Kashmir valley on April 24.

    Capt V Tirupathi (AIC)

    The body of Capt V Tirupathi of the Army Intelligence Corps, who was killed by Naga militants in Nagaland early this week, was brought to Bangalore, “He was all set to become a Major in July. We were all keenly looking forward to that day”, said Tirupathi’s father-in-law S Kannan. Tirupathi last came to Bangalore in the January 2002 to attend his brother-in-law’s wedding, said Mr Kannan, who retired from Mico. “We were all enthused by the presence of Tirupathi at the wedding”, he recalled. “He was an unassuming character and a jovial person, loved by all”, he recalled.

    “Tirupathi was more than a son to me”, was how his mother-in-law Anandamma reacted after learning about the tragedy, which struck the family. Tirupathi’s wife Vanishree and her children were yet to recover from the shock of the tragedy. ‘‘I just can’t believe that he is no more’’, said Vanishree amidst tears rolling from her eyes.

    A grief stricken Yellamma, Tirupathi’s mother, who is settled in Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh, rushed to her daughter-in-law’s house in Bangalore after being informed about the tragedy. “He was a courageous son”, she said. “Recently, Tirupathi sent me some money to conduct obsequies on the occasion of the first death anniversary of his father”, she recalled.

    Major Jagir Singh Khokri (7 Sikh)

    [​IMG]

    On the night of April 25, 1948, keeping up the high traditions of the Army, Major (then Capt) Jagir Singh, who was then in 7 Sikh, fearlessly led his company to capture strongly held hill features by the enemy overlooking Trehgam village in Kashmir. This was vital to clear the advance. He positioned his troops and then personally led a daylight attack on the enemy. Throughout the fierce engagement, his complete disregard for personal safety and exemplary leadership inspired courage in everyone around him.

    After retirement, he was involved in social work and the development of this area, especially Jeevan Preet Nagar. He is survived by his wife, a son and three daughters.

    Major Amit Sharma (27 RR) - Op Rakshak

    Major Amit Sharma made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty combating terrorists in the dense jungles of Bafliaz in the Surankot tehsil of Jammu and Kashmir. Bafliaz in Surankot is the area where Operation Sarp Vinash was carried out by the Indian armed forces some months back. In a gun-battle on March 12 Major Amit Sharma, serving in 27 Rashtriya Rifles, was killed by terrorists hiding in the forest. In the ensuing fight with other terrorists the officer sustained serious gunshot wounds and was evacuated to the military hospital in Surankot where he breathed his last in the early hours of March 13, 2004.

    Earlier, the body of the slain soldier arrived at his residence on Bank Street where his relatives and friends along with family members paid tributes to him. Then the body was taken to the Surajkund cremation ground in a gun carriage. Several senior Army officials also accompanied the gun carriage. At the cremation ground floral tributes were offered and wreaths laid on the body of the officer wrapped in a Tricolour.

    Captain Nitin Chavan (115 Engr Regiment)- Op Rakshak

    Captain Nitin Chavan lost his life on Monday while flushing out Pakistan-sponsored militants in the Rajouri sector in Jammu and Kashmir. Captain Chavan was leading a patrol party when he observed a group of about five militants near Majhiari schooli Surankot tehsil, Rajouri sector.

    Immediately, Captain Chavan divided his party into two groups and chased the militants. Around 1.45 pm, contact was established with the militants in a maize field and fierce fighting ensued for over an hour. Exhibiting raw courage, Captain Chavan and Lance Naik Balwinder, his radio operator closed in onto the maize field from where the fire was coming. He was about to pounce on the militants when the both of them fired at a close range resulting in multiple gun shot wounds to both the brave soldiers who died. The area was soon cordoned by the reinforced troops and operations are still continuing.

    Chavan is survived by his father Prakash Chavan and sister Smita. His mortal remains will arrive in Pune on Wednesday evening by the Delhi-Pune flight.

    Captain R Veera Raja Reddy (69 FD REGT)

    [​IMG]

    The death of Captain R Veera Raja Reddy during a terrorist attack in Rajouri in Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday night has left his family in Hyderabad totally devastated.

    The family received the news on Thursday afternoon, a relative told rediff.com. "His parents, wife and other family members were shocked," the relative added.

    On receiving specific information that a group of seven terrorists had attacked a high-security VIP residential complex, troops cordoned off a major portion of Ward No 1 in Rajouri and mounted searches. As the searches began, the security forces came under heavy fire from the terrorists hiding in the complex, housing senior district officers, including the district magistrate and the district police chief.

    "The militants hurled grenades and fired indiscriminately from automatic weapons killing an army captain on the spot," said a police official in Rajouri reached by telephone. The troops retaliated and the gun battle continued for several hours. Police sources said the troops finally mortar-blasted the house, where the militants were holed up, during the early hours of Thursday. Thereafter, sources added, the firing stopped. Bodies of four militants have been found so far. "This was one of the fiercest gun battles in Rajouri town," said an army
    officer wishing anonymity.

    Captain Arun Singh Jasrotia (9 Para SF) - Op Rakshak

    [​IMG]

    Ashok Chakra, the nation’s highest gallantry award during peace-time, has been awarded to two brave paratroopers—Capt Arun Jasrotia and Maj Sudhir Kumar Walia in 1996 and 2000 respectively. In fact, 9 Para (SF) Battalion, to which they belonged, has been awarded the singular honour "Bravest of the Brave" by the Chief of the Army Staff in 2001.

    Capt Arun Jasrotia displayed grit and courage as he led his troops in a raid on a militant camp on September 15, 1995 where nearly 20 foreign mercenaries were holed up in the Lolab Valley. Finding his men in a disadvantageous position under rocket and rifle fire, Arun led the assault culminating in a fierce hand-to-hand fight. Despite multiple injuries, he pressed on with the assault and accounted for a number of militants, before a bullet ended his life.

    NSG commando Surjan Singh Bhandari

    [​IMG]

    The 26-year-old Bhandari, an NSG commando selected from the army's Garhwal Scouts in 2000, was part of the elite group that was air-dashed to Gujarat on September 24 after two terrorists stormed the Akshardham temple complex in Gandhinagar.

    Firing indiscriminately and hurling grenades, the terrorists had killed 39 persons, including devotees and two security persons.

    The NSG commando team managed to gun down the terrorists in the wee hours on September 25 but lost one of their own men while Surjan was injured in the cross-fire.

    He was immediately rushed to the Civil Hospital in Ahmedabad where he slipped into a coma and was put on a ventilator in a special ward with round-the-clock surveillance.

    He was shifted to a special ward in the AIIMS at the request of his brothers in October 2003.
    The deceased commando's two brothers are also in the defence services.
