Rifleman Jaipal Singh

The Lightning strike: 11 Mar 2016


During 2016, Rfn Jaipal was posted to Ramgarh of Samba District in Jammu & Kashmir. On 11th March 2016, his unit was given the duty on Ditch Cum Bunds (DCB) in the Zero Line of Indo Pak border near the Abtaal Road. It was a very bad-weather day and the sky was covered with low and charged clouds. Due to the large build up of cumulonimbus clouds  lightning and thunder was taking place at frequent interval. Rfn Jaipal was performing his duty with his colleagues at the check post of Abtaal Road. Abruptly the lighting with thunderstorm hit that place. Rfn Jaipal along with the other two soldiers was grievously wounded in the lightning strike. They were immediately shifted to the hospital. But before they could reach the hospital Rfn Jaipal succumbed to his injuries. Rfn Jaipal Singh’s life was snatched while he was out protecting the motherland.


Rifleman Jaipal Singh is survived by his father Om Prakash and brother Dharmpal Singh.
