# Captain Vikram Batra

At that time Captain Batra was leading one of the toughest war operations in J&K and an intercepted message from Pakistan army suggest that even Pakistani soldiers were calling him "SHER SHAH" after witnessing Captain Batra's bravery.

The mission of capturing peak 4875 is said to be one of the toughest mission in the history of Indian Army as Pakistani forces were placed at the height of 16,000 feet above the ground and the Indian soldiers have to reach the top of the peak 4875 with a climb gradient of 80 degrees. While Captain Batra's team was moving upward against the heavy shelling from top based Pakistani soldiers one of the Indian soldiers got severely injured. Batra came forward and save his fellow life and when a subedar tried to help him out Batra instructed him to step aside saying " You have children, let me do". During this mission, Batra not only captured the peak 4875 but also saved many of his fellow's life. The last words from Captain Batra were simply " Jai Mata Di". Captain Batra was honoured with Param Vir chakra the highest military decoration award.

 “Either I will come back after hoisting the tricolour (Indian flag), or I will come back wrapped in it, but I will be back for sure.” - Captain Batra.
