Brief of Incident:
Number G/154369N Rifleman (General Duty) Late Alom Hussain was enrolled in Assam Rifles on 12 July 2002. On 17 June 2018, a column comprising of one officer, one JCO and 20 Other Ranks moved in two Tata-407 vehicles to Sowa Chinglen from Aboi Company Operating Base. The column further moved to Iron Bridge RC 294846 and linked up with column of Longleng Company Operating Base. The party started moving back towards the Company Operating Base at 1300 hours. At approximately 1505 hours, the column reached near Iron Bridge RC 364873, four kilometers short of Aboi Company Operating Base. Suddenly, the leading vehicle of the column came under effective automatic fire from militants near the bridge, preceded by explosion of two Improvised Explosive Devices. Rifleman (General Duty) Late Alom Hussain was sitting in the body of leading vehicle. He immediately retaliated while taking available cover inside the vehicle and fired in the direction of incoming fire, pinning down the militants. In the ensuing firefight, Rifleman (General Duty) Late Alom Hussain sustained gunshot wounds on his body. As the militants came under effective fire, they escaped taking advantage of bad weather and thick vegetation. After the firing stopped, Rifleman (General Duty) Late Alom Hussain was immediately taken to Primary Health Centre, Aboi for first aid and further evacuated to 5 Air Force Hospital, Jorhat by helicopter. He succumbed to his injuries and attained martyrdom on 18 June 2018 at 2345 hours at 5 Air Force Hospital, Jorhat. Rifleman (General Duty) Alom Hussain made the supreme sacrifice in the service of the Nation in the best traditions of the Force.
