Tulunadu is always known to support talents. People of Tulunadu have gone and prospered in all fields. Not to be left behind is in army. We have seen many of youngsters joining army and serving the country. 28-year-old Zubair, a native of Puttur taluk serves with the 49th battalion of CRPF at Karan Nagar Battalion headquarters is making headlines nationwide.
He was among the soldiers feted with Commendation Disc and Certificate for thwarting fidayeen attack at Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp at Srinagar on February 12. In the early hours of February 12, after receiving information that terrorist had attempted to attack on the 23 battalion of CRPF. There was quick retaliation by the security forces, the militants had retreated and fled to a building in the Karan Nagar area.
In the operation that lasted over 30 hours, both the terrorists were killed. Unfortunately one of our constable Mojahid Khan from Bihar was killed during the counter-terror operation. It was Zubair, who first spotted suspicious movement of the terrorist outside the camp parliament and opened fire at them, after which the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operandis aborted their attack plan.
Zubair along with the commandos of Quick Action Teams have been awarded Commendation Disc and Certificate by the director general of CRPF Rajiv Rai Bhatnagar that read ‘For displaying thorough professionalism and unparalleled dedication, devotion and valour in eliminating the terrorist during the Karimnagar encounter dated 12/2/2018’.
Zubair finished his elementary education till 12th at Sri Ramakunjeshwara Educational Institution and completed his bachelor of business management degree in 2011 at St Philomena College. He is serving as a constable for CRPF and was trained at RTC CRPF Latur, Maharashtra. He joined the armed forces in 2013.
Zubair always wanted to serve the nation. Since a kid, he wanted to join police force. However despite two attempts, he could not get in. It looks like destiny had better plans for him. He cleared army selection in the first attempt itself . He has been serving in Srinagar for the last two-and-a-half years.
Zubair got married in October 2017 and returned to duty immediately after, and is anticipating a visit to his hometown in March this year. He is also tech savvy.
Zubair is a true role model for everyone. Hats off to him. SeeandSay.in wishes him all the best for his future.
