Kargil War: Eight Sikh Played A Pivotal Role In The Capture Of Tiger Hill, Says Brigadier MPS Bajwa


Brigadier MPS Bajwa commanded the 192 Mountain Brigade in the Kargil conflict. In an interview, he tells The Indian Express how he almost missed the war but when inducted, his troops gave Indian Army the biggest victory in the battle for Tiger Hill. Excerpts:

Please tell us the interesting manner of your Brigade HQ moving in from the valley for the Kargil conflict?

The initial thinking was why to induct all the formations together. The first one to be rushed in was Brig Devinder Singh with 70 Infantry Brigade. Subsequently, when the situation started going out of control then 56 Brigade under Brig Amar Aul was inducted by mid-May and by June 1 the 8 Mountain Div HQ moved in.

I had shed off my battalions including 13 JAK RIF and 3/3 GR from my brigade which had been inducted. My Brigade HQ was the last one to come. Initially, 56 Brigade was being given battalions. I started getting battalions after battalions who were on the move.  Read More
