Manipur Attack: 04 June 2015


During 2015, Hav Jagveer Singh’s unit was deployed in Manipur in the northeastern part of the country. There had been militant activity in the border region of Manipur in the early part of the year 2015. In response to this, 1,463-km of an un-fenced border between Manipur and Myanmar had been sealed and the Army and paramilitary forces had launched a major counter-offensive against the militants. On the 4th of June, the 6 Dogra infantry was heading to the capital of Manipur, Imphal in a 4-vehicle convoy. While they were crossing the Chandel district, on the way, they were ambushed by militants. The tribal guerrillas fired rocket-propelled grenades and detonated improvised explosive devices on the convoy, causing extensive damage. 


The attack by militants on the convoy was planned by a joint group comprising of cadres from NSCN(K), Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL) and Kanglapak Communist Party (KCP). The well-trained militants had planned the ambush beforehand and they triggered a landmine when the military convoy reached the area between Paralong village and Charong village in Chandel district. They also attacked the convoy with heavy automatic weapons, firing from vantage points and fired rockets and grenades. Most of the convoy, consisting of about 4 vehicles with 50 soldiers, was severely damaged and many soldiers were burnt to death on account of the blast. The few survivors were shot to death by the militants.


The incident was reported to be one of the deadliest attacks by militants in the area. Hav Jagveer Singh was one of the 18 brave soldiers who lost their lives in this horrendous attack. Besides Hav Jagveer Singh the other soldiers included  Nb Sub Ram Singh (from Samba), Hav Prakash Chand (from Mandi, HP), Hav.
