A short view of Air operation 27 May 1999
He was the part of Safed Sagar in Kargil. Just he was about to take flight he was informed that the Fl.Lt. Nachiketa was ejected from his MiG aircraft. In spite of knowing that there is a fear of surface to air missile which can hit his aircraft, he went on the search of his fellow officer.
After some time he was able to locate the crashed aircraft. He messaged to the control room to launch rescue helicopters.
However, his MiG 21 MF was targeted by FIM 92 Stinger Missile. to inform about his hitting he sent a radio message
“Hercules, something has hit my plane, possibility of missile hit cannot be ruled out, I am ejecting over…(location).”
With his extreme presence of mind and professionalism, he took his plane to the safer area but unfortunately the engine flamed out. As there was no choice except to eject out. He ejected and safely landed. In some crucial circumstance, he was martyred.
