What is the best incident you heard from the Indian Army? by Neeraj Kumar Prasad
Answer by Neeraj Kumar Prasad:
Every armed force personnel carries a special story to tell, I have heard many of them.
I would like to share this one heroic of Lt.col dpk pillay
In North-Eastern Indian villages people hate the presence of army. But this brave army officer made a special place in the hearts of villagers.
On jan 1994, Longdaipabram, mainpur insurgents attacked the village. Army took an immediate action. A team of commandos lead by Capt. Dpk pillay was sent. He broke the door of a room with a kick to enter it, just then he got two AK-47 billets burst on his left shoulder and then two on his chest. One of the insurgent threw a grenade, he kicked it but unfortunately it burst at some close distance. He wounded his legs. When the situation was back to normal, Capt. dpk pillay was in a half dead condition.
The extraordinary tale starts from here.
He came to know that two small children were badly injured and they would not survive if proper medical assistance is not given immediataly. The nearest hospital was about 6 hours from there but they may not survive for that long. In that half dead condition he decided to fly the helicopter to the hospital. He reached on time and kids were saved.
He is still in a close relation with villagers.
