Siachen Glacier Fire Accident : 19 Jul 2023

 

During July 2023, Capt Anshuman Singh was serving with 403 Field Hospital of 26 Punjab battalion on attachemnt from 26 Madras deployed in Siachen Glacier. The area remained inaccessible during the winter months and the soldiers faced extreme risks in manning the forward posts in inhospitable terrain at heights over 19,000 feet under extreme weather conditions. The troops besides manning designated posts also operated regular patrols to monitor the gaps between the manned posts. Capt Anshuman Singh functioning as Regimental medical officer was responsible to provide medical care to all the troops deployed in the area. 

 

In the early morning hours on 19th Jul 2023, approximately at 3 a.m., an ammunition stockpile caught fire dangerously close to Capt Anshuman's bunker at the Chandan post. Capt Anshuman quickly realized that many of his soldiers were trapped inside and needed to be rescued. Without caring for his own safety, he leaped into action, fully aware of the risks, to save as many of his fellow troops as possible. Despite the perilous surroundings and the threat posed by the fire, he fearlessly ventured into the affected area, determined to search for survivors and bring them to safety. A total of seven soldiers were rescued, three of them with severe burns. Capt Anshuman went inside the burning FRP shelter three times to move the trapped soldiers to safety. However when he went fourth time, he himself got trapped and suffered severe burns. Tragically, Capt Anshuman could not overcome the severity of his injuries, and succumbed to the ordeal. Capt Anshuman Singh was a valiant soldier and a fine officer, who led from the front and laid down his life at the age of 26 years in the service of the nation. Capt Anshuman Singh was given the nation’s second-highest peacetime gallantry award, “Kirti Chakra” posthumous for his outstanding courage, devotion to duty and supreme sacrifice

 

Capt Anshuman Singh is survived by his father Sub Ravi Pratap Singh (Retd), mother and wife Smt Shristi Singh.

    आप सभी को मेरा वंदन

    में राहुल पटेल, मुंबई से आप सभी को दिल से धन्यवाद करता हू। आप लोगो ने बिना हमे देखे अपने पुत्र, भाई, पति और पिता को देश व देशवासियों की रक्षा के लिए अर्पण कर दीया।

    भारतीय सेना के हर वीर जवान हम लोगो के लिए अपने जान को खतरे में डाल कर दिन रात हमारे सुरक्षा के लिए अपना परिवार त्याग कर सरहदों पर खड़े है।

    भारतिय सेना का हर एक वीर चाहे तो सुबह 8 से 6 की नौकरी कर सकता था, पर उसने देश की सेवा करना चुना। यह हमारे वीर कोई मामूली लोग नहीं है बल्कि देश के सच्चे हीरो है।

    इस देश मे निस्वार्थ भाव से अगर कीसी ने सेवा की है तो वह केवल भारतीय सेना के वीर जवान ही है।

    मेने देखा है भारतीय सेना के वीर जवान जब भी किसी नागरिक से बात करते है तो वह बहोत सम्मान और प्यार भरे व्यावहार से करते है। यह केवल तभी पॉसिबल होता है जंहा सच्चा प्यार और निस्वार्थ स्नेह होता है।

    मुजे मेरे भारतीय सेना के वीर जवानों पर बहोत गर्व और प्यार है।

    अंत मे No Cricketer, No Film Star Indian Army is my Super Star

    जय हिंद जय जवान

    I can’t believe this. He is younger than me and He died on my birthday. He had many more years ahead of him yet he sacrificed his life for others without even blinking. His courage shall not be forgotten. Jai Hind! Jai Jawan!
