Terrorist turned decorated soldier Lance Naik Nazir Wani to receive Ashoka Chakra

The Ashoka Chakra is India's highest peacetime gallantry award.

Lance Naik Nazir Wani, who made supreme sacrifice for the country fighting the terrorists in Shopian last year, will be conferred with India’s highest peacetime gallantry award-Ashoka Chakra, posthumously.

According to the press release from the President’s Secretariat, “Lance Naik Nazir Ahmad Wani displayed extraordinary valour in eliminating two terrorists and assisting in the evacuation of his wounded colleagues and made supreme sacrifice in the highest traditions of the Indian Army.”

Lance Naik Nazir Wani was once a militant himself, but he soon realised the futility of the insurgency. He then joined the Indian counter-insurgency forces in 2004 to fight terrorism in Kashmir and was soon regarded as a legend in the fauji circles.

In 2007, he had received the Sena Medal for gallantry and had also received a bar to the Sena Medal in August last year. On Monday, his body was taken to his village, draped in the Tricolour. Lance Naik Wani was given a 21 gun salute.
