Late Mr. Surjan Singh Bhandari
N.S.G. Commando
During The Attack on Akshardham temple on 24th September 2002 this Brave Man fought the greatest battle of his life. Yes he was the N.S.G. Commando Late Mr. Surjan Singh , who sacrificed his life for the Nation. Sadly On 19th May 2004 he lost the Toughest and Longest battle against life exactly after 600 Days being in Coma, he lost this life.

The Bullet which hit him in the head made him Unconscious for almost 600 days. His family members were hoping that one day their Hero will open his eyes but he didn't.

It was the Longest Wait for the family members of this Brave Man. When the whole India was busy in Guessing Who will be the Next PM of the country - Will it be Sonia or will it be Manmohan Singh, This man was fighting his Last battle. But it's so sad that in the hype of all the Political Drama, the News about his Death was Lost like a needle in a hay stack! Even the leading News Papers & So Called Best News Channels of India which Works on 24 X 7 basis, failed to highlight this story of the Brave Man. Unfortunately it was mentioned somewhere on the middle page of some newspaper.....This was the Reward for the Brave task for which he lost his life.

Besides his Family members, only one thing was there with him during those toughest 600 days. It was there near his bed till the last Moment. Can you guess what it was?............... It was the "Tiranga", yes! Our National Flag, which was saluting him for his Great cause. Absolutely No words can suffice our Gratitude towards him...


If news papers refuse to cover, TV channels refuse to cover, let us do our bit.
This is the only way we can salute his Bravery..
May his soul rest in peace.

That man is a true hero.

It's a travesty if the local media is not covering the story.

Yup, I guess its not only the US media that hates heros, especially hero cops and military members.

RIP

May Surjan Singh Bhandari's soul rest in peace, and I believe the NSG will produce more brave heroes like him who are ever ready to sacrifice their present for the nation's tomorrow.


I hope his family receives an MVC medal posthumusly.

BTW, any idea to which unit (mother unit) Surjan Singh Bhandari belong? That the NSG is comprised of men from the PM/Army/and in some instances, men from some state police forces, is there anyway he can get the MVC if he happens not to be from the Army/AF/Navy? Just a doubt needed to be cleared by someone who is aware on facts about it.

Surjan Singh was from the Garhwal Scouts. He unfortunately will not get the Mahavir Chakra as the was not facing a uniformed enemy. Surjan Singh has already been decorated with the Kirti Chakra (equavalent to the MVC for gallentry not in the face of the enemy).

The benifits are the same for both the MVC and KC.

Whate benefits accompany these medals.
Off hand some benifits are as under:-
- Cash awards from home state.
- Grant of land in home state.
- Life long pension (a measly Rs.1200 at present) or medal pay while in service.
- Reservation for the awardee's children in professional intitutions.
- Free rail & air travel (free travel only Indian Airlines, Air India and Jet Air within India)
- Provision of allotment of petrol pumps/ gas agencies.
