In a case of ceasefire violation, Pakistani troops opened unprovoked fire in the sector along the LOC on 20th October 2019. Pakistan Army troops initiated unprovoked firing on Indian posts from across the border in the Tangdhar sector. During that period, Rfn Gamil Kumar’s unit, 3/9 GR was manning the forward posts along the Line of Control in the Tangdhar sector. The Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire and resorted to heavy cross-border shelling of various Indian Army posts and civilian areas. 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, Rfn Gamil Kumar got severely injured and was shifted to the nearby field hospital. However, he later succumbed to his injuries and was martyred.  

Rifleman Gamil Kumar Shrestha is survived by his parents.
