 On 18th March 2019 Rifleman Karamjit was deployed at the forward post of the Keri area in the Sundarbani sector. Early in the morning, the Pakistani troops broke the ceasefire and initiated unprovoked firing from across the border. They were using heavy artillery guns and mortars. The Indian side retaliated in a befitting manner to the Pakistani firing. However, during the heavy cross-firing Rifleman Karamjit got seriously injured and was immediately shifted to the military hospital. But he succumbed to his injuries and got martyred. 

The young brave son of the soil is survived by his parents, two brothers, and a sister.
