Naik Deepak Nainwal

Naik Deepak Nainwal hailed from Kanchula village in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. Son of Shri Chakradhar Nainwal and Smt Parvati Devi, Naik Deepak joined the Indian Army after completing his education. He was recruited into 1 Mahar of the famed Mahar Regiment, a regiment of the Infantry known for its fearless soldiers and numerous battle honours.


After serving for some time he got married to Ms Jyoti and the couple had a daughter Lavanya and a son Reyansh. He served with his parent unit for few years and later was deputed to serve with 1 RR battalion deployed in J & K for counter-insurgency operations.


Kulgam Operation: 10 Apr 2018


During  2018, Naik Deepak Nainwal’s unit was deployed in the Kulgam district of J & K and was engaged in operations against the militants on a regular basis. On 10th April 2018, information was received from an intelligence source about the presence of terrorists at a house in Wani Mohalla in Khudwani village of Kulgam district of J&K. Based on the information a decision was taken by the security forces to launch an operation to flush out the terrorists. The operation was launched by a joint team of 1 RR battalion of the Army, Special Operation Group(SOG) of J & K Police and CRPF at around 11:30 pm.


The joint team swung into action and the suspected area was cordoned off. On being challenged the terrorists fired at the troops and a fierce gun battle ensued thereafter. The gun battle continued for over 12 hours till the morning of 11 Apr 2018. However, during the heavy exchange of fire Naik Deepak Nainwal got hit in his spine area and sustained serious injuries. Initially he was shifted to Delhi’s Army Research and Referral hospital for treatment and later he was transferred to a military hospital in Pune, for further specialized care. However, Naik Deepak Nainwal lost the battle for life and succumbed to his injuries on 20 May 2018. Naik Deepak Nainwal was a fearless and committed soldier who laid down his life in the service of the nation. Naik Deepak Nainwal’s wife Smt Jyoti took the tragedy in her stride and decided to take his legacy forward by joining the army. Her dream finally came true on 20 Nov 2021, when she passed out of OTA Chennai as a commissioned officer of Indian Army.


Naik Deepak Nainwal is survived by his wife, Smt Jyoti Nainwal (Now Lieutenant Jyoti Nainwal), daughter Lavanya, son Reyansh, father Shri Chakradhar Nainwal, mother Smt Parvati Devi , sister Poonam and brother Pradeep.
