Kashmiri militant-turned-soldier Lance Naik Nazir Wani, who got martyred while killing 6 terrorists in operation in valley, has been chosen for this year's Ashok Chakra, highest peace time gallantry award. 🇮🇳 #ashokchakra#gallantryaward
Follow @param_vir_chakra The recipient of #AshokChakra as well as #KirtiChakra , the nation's highest & second highest peace time gallantry awards, Col N Jayachandran Nair belonged to a rare breed of brave soldiers ....... Col Nair hailed form Ernakulam in #Kerala and belonged to the Maratha Light Infantry Regiment of #IndianArmy . Displaying raw courage and unfaltering leadership, he was martyred on 20 Dec 1993 during a counter-insurgency operation in Nagaland.
During 1993, Col Nair’s unit was deployed in Nagaland, infested with insurgents engaged in anti national activities. On Dec 20, 1993, Col Nair was leading an advance party of convoy in Nagaland when they were ambushed by about one hundred insurgents. The insurgents in a pre-planned attack used automatic weapons and manged to kill 1 Junior Commissioned officer and 13 jawans on the spot. Col Nair too got injured in the attack but did not loose courage and took charge of the situation.
Col Nair though seriously injured, crawled to the other side of the road on his knees to get into a tactically advantageous position. Like a hero he carried an injured soldier on his shoulders and directed his troops to fire at the rebels. This resulted in the halt of cross firing from the rebels which gave Col Nair crucial time to tactically position his troops for the assault. Col Nair despite being wounded badly kept on motivating his troops and finally forced the rebels to retreat. Col Nair subsequently succumbed to his injuries and was martyred. Col Nair as a commanding officer of his unit acted as a true military leader and saved the lives of his men by his daredevil action and unyielding fighting spirit.
