SALUTE TO BRAVE HEARTS

PAYING OF RESPECT TO ONE AND ALL

This blog pays respect to all soldiers, police personnel, fire men, staff of Hotel Taj & Oberoi Trident who laid their lives in saving the honour of this country during attack by terrorists at Mumbai. Every Indian’s heart goes out to the families who lost their close ones in the terror attacks in Mumbai. It is an hour of gloom as near two hundred innocent Indians have died and the nation is battling the most ugly form of terrorism.
This catastrophe of extraordinary dimensions has left everybody shocked. But for most of us who watched the war-like-situation on TV sets in our homes, the harsh reality is that so many of the brave police officers and army men (NSG) lost their lives.
We salute all these men including top officers like Hemant Karkare, Vijay Salaskar Major.Sandeep Unnikrishnan, Ashok Kamte and Sadanand Date & the junior personnel like Inspector Shinde, and Havildar Gajender Singh who sacrificed their lives to rescue the innocents trapped in the Mumbai hotels.

Shri.Hemant Karkare

ATS Chief and Police Officer
No one is indispensable, but some rare people come quite close to it. Hemant Karkare, the chief of Mumbai Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), who laid down his life fighting one of the worst terror attacks on the Indian soil, definitely falls in that category.
Born in Nagpur, Karkare studied mechanical engineering in Nagpur and worked at the National Productivity Council and Hindustan Lever before making it to the prestigious IPS in 1982.
While posted in Nagpur he fought the Naxalite forces and earned a reputation of being an officer who is courageous as well as having a sound head on his shoulder. In several missions undertook by him, he used not only his brawn, but his superlative brain to achieve success.
Shri.Vijay Salaskar

Police Officer and Enounter Specialist
Vijay Salaskar was an IPS officer with the Mumbai police. He was considered as an encounter specialist. He is believed to have killed around 75 criminals in encounters. He was killed while fighting terrorists in the November 2008 Mumbai attacks. Before his death he was heading the Anti-Extortion Cell, Mumbai. Salaskar was a post-graduate in Commerce from Mumbai University. He joined Mumbai police as a sub inspector. He is believed to have killed around 75 criminals in police encounters.
Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan

NSG Commando
Sandeep Unnikrishnan, a 31-year-old National Security Guard (NSG) commando, laid down his life fighting the terrorists in Mumbai on Friday. To prevent his colleagues from getting caught in the crossfire, Sandeep told them to keep away. unfortunately, he was grievously injured in the gun battle with the terrorists.
The braveheart hailed from Bangalore where his father works for the Indian Space Research Organisation.
Havildar Gajendar Singh

Specialist in heli-borne operations
The other brave heart, Havildar Gajender Singh, was a specialist in heli-borne operations.
“Gajender Singh was chosen for the Nariman House operation as he qualified for the job extremely well. He was leading the slithering act and its follow up action,” the NSG official said while paying homage to the slain commandos at the NSG headquarters in the national capital.
Other martyrs

Dear Anony @9:55 AM
Following information on Vijay Salaskar is available:-
Vijay Salaskar (Marathi: विजय सालस्कर) was an Indian Police Service (IPS) officer and encounter specialist serving with the Mumbai police.
[1] He is widely credited with killing 75–80 criminals in encounters—most of these were members of the Arun Gawli gang.
[2] Salaskar was killed while fighting terrorists in the November 2008 Mumbai attacks.
[3] Captured terrorist Azam Amir Kasav claimed responsibility for the killing.
[4] Before his death Salaskar was head of the Anti-Extortion Cell, Mumbai.

Early life and career
Salaskar was a post-graduate in Commerce from Mumbai University. He joined Mumbai police as a sub inspector in 1983. India Today reports Salaskar's first lethal encounter occurred during his first year of appointment, when he shot dead Raja Shahabuddin, known to police on several counts.
[5] Salaskar became well known as the number of lethal encounters with underworld criminals grew over the course of his carreer. He was responsible for the deaths of: Amar Naik, Jaggu and Sadhu Shetty, Sada Pawle, Vijay Tandel and Bandya.
[6] After being out of the spotlight for quite sometime, the encounter specialist was given the posting of heading the anti-extortion wing of the crime branch.


Death
Vijay Salaskar was killed in action by terrorists during the Mumbai attacks, on 26 November 2008.
India Express quotes statements by Constable Arun Jadhav, who was with the officers Vijay Salaskar, Ashok Kamte and Hemant Karkare when they died.
[7] The three officers and four constables had received information that Sadanand Date had been injured in the gunfire at the Cama and Albless Hospital for women and children. Currently located at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), a ten-minute drive from the hospital.
[8]They took a Toyota Qualis and proceeded in that direction. Salaskar was driving, Kamte in the passenger seat, Karkare in the second row, and the four Constables, including Jadhav, were in the back row of seating. According to Jadhav, five minutes later two terrorists stepped out from behind a tree and opened fire with AK-47 automatic rifles. The six policemen, other than Jadhav, were all killed quickly in the gunfire. The wounded Jadhav had no opportunity to render assistance. The two terrorists approached the vehicle, dumped the bodies of the three officers on the road and, leaving the constables for dead, proceeded to Metro Junction. Upon arrival, they aimed three bursts of automatic fire at police and journalist vehicles drawn up at that location, then drove off towards the government offices (Vidhan Bhawan) in South Mumbai. Here again they fired several times. While attempting to leave the area, one of the tyres of the vehicle burst, so the terrorists departed to obtain another. At this point, Jadhav was able to contact headquarters. The bodies of the dead were promptly recovered and taken to St George Hospital.

So BP,
So now U are admitting that they DID NOT Die "FIGHTING THE MILITANTS" as you, so badly, wanted us to believe.I was wrong to have believed you in the first place.
Very poor show BP.

My Dear Loverboy,Raj and the likes,
O yaar, which duffer are U trying to convince.If BP had any matter in his big nut he would have been busy serving the nation rather. Isdi ta khopdi chalti hai upar thalle da kharcha kaddan layi te waddiya lokkan nu badnaam karke apni jhooti shan vikhan layyi. Oye es KDP te apna waqt na zaya karo.He needs to see a F@#@&%& shrink.
