During the Pampore attack, Captain Pawan Kumar led his troop from the front lawn to make a volley of fire. The volley of fire was made so quickly by him and his team. He made sure that he got first in any problematic situations and phases. His words and actions always showed his commitment to his uniform, duty, and men. And that’s the reason why he, even though he was injured, agreed to go for the operation rather than go on sick leave.
Capt. Kumar led his men in four operations in which they killed six terrorists. On 26 February, when he got on board the Pampore operation in Jammu & Kashmir, he was still recovering from his last injury.
Despite several facts, like he was injured, he went close to the marked territory in the targeted building and conducted the operation. He knocked on the door to lob the grenade when the terrorist shot him from very close proximity. But even after his grievous injuries, he keeps on firing to kill as many people as possible.
All his efforts saved many lives of his troops during the mission. He is truly a man of power and sacrifice. And for his courage and spirit, he was awarded “Shaurya Chakra” on 15th August 2016.
History will remember Captain Pawan Kumar and his supreme sacrifices for the nation.
