Sepoy Laxman Choudhary

Sepoy Laxman Choudhary hailed from Khejadla village in Bilara tehsil of Jodhpur district in Rajasthan. Son of Shri Kiranaram Choudhary and Smt Mangi Devi, Sep Laxman had a sister Sushila and brother Sunil as siblings. He joined the Army after completing his education in the year 2015 at the age of 18 years. He was recruited into 21 Jat battalion of the well known Jat Regiment, an infantry regiment widely respected for its intrepid soldiers and numerous battle exploits.

 

By the year 2020, he had put in around 5 years of service and had developed into a tough and dedicated soldier. After serving for a couple of years wit his parent unit he was deputed to serve with 61 RR battalion deployed in J&K for counter-insurgency operations. His marriage had been fixed in April 2021, but the destiny has something else in store for him. 

 

LOC Firing (Sunderbani Sector): 03 Feb 2021

 

During Sep 2020, Sep Laxman‘s unit 61 RR was deployed in the Sunderbani sector of J & K along the LOC. India shares a 3,323-km border with Pakistan, of which 221 km of the IB and 740 km of the LOC fall in Jammu and Kashmir. As in the previous years, the LOC was highly active and volatile where ceasefire violations occurred very often and without any warning. It was also used by the terrorists for infiltration with the connivance of Pakistani security forces. The year 2020 witnessed very high number of ceasefire violations and the trend continued in the year 2021 too. One more such ceasefire violation took place on 03 Feb 2021 in Rajouri district of J&K.

 

On 03 Feb 2021, Pakistani troops initiated unprovoked firing on Indian posts from across the border in the Sunderbani sector in Rajouri district. Pakistani soldiers violated the ceasefire and resorted to unprovoked firing using small arms, automatics, and mortars. Pakistan army resorted to shelling and firing in Sunderbani sector with a view to push trained militants into the Indian territory. Sep Laxman’s unit was manning one of the forward posts in that sector. Indian forces retaliated forcefully against the ceasefire violation and the cross border firing continued for several hours. However, during the exchange of fire, Sep Laxman got grievously injured and was immediately shifted to the hospital at the nearby Army base. However, Sep Laxman later succumbed to his injuries and was martyred. Sep Laxman was a valiant and committed soldier who laid down his life at the age of 23 years in the service of the nation.

 

Sep Laxman Choudhary is survived by his father Shri Kiranaram Choudhary, mother Smt Mangi Devi, sister Sushila and brother Sunil.

    Soldiers like you Sir, when committed to a task, can’t compromise. It’s unrelenting devotion to the standards of duty and courage, absolute loyalty to others, not letting the task go until it’s been done.

    You ensured that each and every one of us can sleep soundly at night, knowing we have ‘guardians at the gate.’ ”

    And yet another soldier was martyred!!! While we were resting in our homes peacefully, the valiant soldiers like Sepoy Laxman Choudhary fought with a heart of gold at the border for our safe-keeping! I really feel sad to read about such an early demise of such a young man. May the good Lord give his family the strength to bear the loss. Sepoy Laxman has not gone anywhere, he is right here in all of our hearts and we will never forget his contribution to our nation.

    May the departed soul Rest In Peace!
