Lance Naik Mohammed Naseer hailed from Ajout village in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir. Son of Shri Mohammad Razak, Lance Naik Mohammed Naseer was born in the year 1982 and joined the Army after completing his school education.

Cross Border Firing: Rajouri Sector (15 July 2017)


During 2017 L/Nk Mohammed Naseer ‘s unit 15 JAK LI was deployed in Poonch district of J&K. The unit troops were manning the forward posts in Rajouri sector along the LOC.  The LOC remained highly active and volatile with ceasefire violations occurring very often and without any warning. Similarly the year 2017 too continued with ceasefire violations. Pakistan continued to violate the 2003 ceasefire agreement with India despite repeated calls for restraint and adherence to the pact during flag meetings between the two sides. In yet another case of ceasefire violation, Pakistani troops opened unprovoked fire in Rajouri sector along the LOC on 15 July 2017.


On 15 July 2017 at around 1330 hrs, Pakistan Army troops initiated unprovoked firing on Indian posts from across the border in Rajouri  sector. During that period, Lance Naik Naseer’s unit, 15 JAK LI was manning the forward posts along the Line of Control. The Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire and resorted to heavy cross border shelling of various Indian Army posts and civilian areas. Pakistani firing and shelling covered Balakote, Panjgrian, Naika and Manjakote areas along the LOC in Rajouri sector. Indian army responded in a befitting manner to the Pakistani aggression and consequently, a heavy exchange of fire ensued thereafter, which continued intermittently for several hours. However, during this cross border shelling, Lance Naik Naseer got severely injured by shell splinters. He was given first aid and immediately evacuated to the military hospital for specialized treatment. However, Lance Naik Naseer succumbed to his injuries and was martyred. Lance Naik Naseer was a valiant and committed soldier who laid down his life in the line of his duty.


Lance Naik Mohammed Naseer is survived by his wife Smt Wasim Akhtar and three children.
