It has been more than a decade now, yet, it appears that the stink of Kargil debacle is still there in the air for the Indian army and while the Indian military and intelligence continue to lick the Kargil wounds another “Kargil Hero”, created through fake citations of the commanders surfaced as disgraced and outraged by none else by the Indian Army itself when he came to take part in the Republic Day Pravda here at New Delhi with a deeply dejected body language, wearing the demoted, downgraded ranks on his uniform, joining the “Fakes’ Club” of Indian war heroes where at least Grenadier Yonginder Singh Yadav was awaiting him, reveal the findings of The Daily Mail.
The Daily Mail’s findings reveal Havildar Sanjay Kumar, a Param Vir Chakra recipient (awarded for showing extraordinary bravery during Kargil conflict), has already been downgraded to the rank of Lance Naik from the rank of Havildar while the Indian Ministry of Defence refuses to give any explanations for this disgrace and demotion to the recipient of country’s highest military award.
The Daily Mail’s findings disclose that Havildar Sanjay Kumar was “citied” by his commanders for “ fighting with extraordinary bravery during the Kargil conflict between India and Pakistan, more than a decade ago and was thus awarded the country’s highest gallantry award, the Param Vir Chakra and was promoted to rank of Havildar from the lowest rank of Rifleman. These findings indicate that Kumar is among the only three surviving soldiers who received the highest peace and wartime “honour”. Apart from the 13th Jammu and Kashmir Rifles soldier, Yogendra Singh Yadav of 22 Grenadier and Subedar Major Bana Singh (Honorary Captain) are the only other PVC recipients who are still alive.

The Daily Mail’s investigations reveal that Kumar, who was promoted to the rank of Havildar from Rifleman, was seen wearing the ranks of a Lance Naik during a recent function held to celebrate the 61st Republic Day. Though he refused to comment, sources said he was demoted from his rank of Havildar after he was awarded the Param Vir Chakra. When contacted by The Daily Mail, Military officials also refused to comment on the issue. But what could be a double insult to Kumar is that the Ministry of Defence continued to mention him as a Havildar in its press releases issued for the Republic Day.
“In last year’s Republic Day Parade he was seen wearing the ranks of a Lance Naik. But in the officials press releases he was mentioned as Havildar,” said a Ministry of Defence official, requesting anonymity. It is worth mentioning here that all surviving Param Vir Chakra awardees join the march past at Rajpath every year on Republic Day.
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate that after the Kargil conflict was over, the Army Headquarters at New Delhi, that were stormed by controversies and massive criticism, not only for the debacle at the war front but also for the massive financial wrongdoings in the direction of procurements by army, directed all the commanders of the Kargil front to immediately submit citations for the bravery of the soldiers so that the pressure from the political circles could be minimized nonetheless to boost up the morale of the demoralized troops. These findings indicate that in the hasty compliance of strong orders from the headquarters, the commanders at Kargil made a variety of blunders and submitted many fake citations with the recommendations of top military awards including the highest and the most prestigious PVC award.
The Daily Mail’s findings reveal that the wrong citations started surfacing soon and the biggest blunder in this regard emerged when the farcical episode of PVC recipient Grenadier Yoginder Singh Yadave began to unveiled as Yoginder was found hiding at a military hospital in New Delhi while, following the fake citations of his commanders, the government of Indian awarded him with the posthumous (after death) PVC award.
The Daily Mail’s investigations indicate that Indian army leadership was put on a flashing burner by the opposition parties in the parliament not only for outrageous display of combat at Kargil but also for huge financial wrongdoings in procurements, during the conflict. These findings indicate that after pointing out glaring lapses and improprieties in purchase of specialised mountain warfare equipment for the Kargil war, the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India had said that even non high-altitude weaponry deals were pushed through by the Defence Ministry in the name of Operation Vijay. “Though deployment of T-72 tanks was not possible at high altitude,” the defence ministry had used the pretext of Operation Vijay and the relaxation of procedures to push through a deal worth $27.17 million in July, 1999 for delivery of 2800 rounds of T-72 ammunition from Israel and another 7000 rounds within six months, the CAG said in its report tabled in the Indian Parliament.
The Daily Mail’s investigations reveal that T-72 ammunition was not the sole case of ‘non-emergent requirement’ pushed through as another glaring example was the import of 644 items of spares for combat engineers tractors from the Royal Ordinance, United Kingdom in January, 2000 at an estimated cost of 439,810.33 pounds sterling. Saying that out of 644 items, 475 spares were only bin items, the CAG had stated that the deal was gone through without reviewing the justification for bin samples for spares included in the contract, even though these combat tractors were due to be phased out by 2003. “Thus even unnecessary and non-emergent requirements were pushed through Operation Vijay procurement,” the CAG said in its report.
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate the CAG had pointed out that the deal went through even though sufficient funds were not available under the relevant head for purchase of ammunition adding that relaxed procedure for Kargil operations were used to push through the deal.
The Daily Mail’s findings further indicate that the CAG also referred to another case of projected requirement of 20 short-range additional radars, citing urgent needs for Operation Vijay, which ‘appeared imprudent’. It said the army, citing urgent requirements for Kargil operations, projected an immediate induction of 20 radars in July, 1999 and the ministry called for quotations in September 20, 1999 with a delivery schedule of six to eight weeks. “A higher unit price of $112,500 dollars was quoted by the same company for a shorter delivery period. The offer was accepted and the contract worth $2.3 million concluded,” .
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate that such allegations of financial embezzlements under the grab of combating a war with Pakistan and the accusations of below average performance by the troops rang alarm bells at the Military Headquarters in New Delhi and the top brass started taking all the measures for face saving and the hurriedly invited citations from the field commanders was the top step, taken under extreme pressure. These findings indicate that the first major baseless citation in this direction that hit the headlines of the media across the world was that of Grenadier Yoginder Singh Yadave of the Gathak platoon of the Indian army. Yadave was awarded with Posthumous Param Vir Chakra in the light of the citations of his commanders for fighting with extraordinary bravery at Kargil front. However the international media, soon after the announcement of the award, discovered that the “brave martyred”, recipient of posthumous PVC award was not only alive but was hiding was actually an absconder who ran away from the war front by hiding himself under the bodies of some dead and critically injured fellow soldiers and managed to make it to a local field military hospital and from there, he managed to make it further to the main military medical facility at New Delhi with fake identification. His actual whereabouts surfaced when local and international media spotted him to be present, and present very much alive after the Indian government awarded him with the posthumous PVC award, causing great humiliation and immense embarrassment to both the Indian government and Indian Army.
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate that in a bid to overcome this outrageous blunder, the Indian Army begun a high-level inquiry into the “unpardonable mistake” of declaring one of the Param Vir Chakra winners, Grenadier Yogendra Singh Yadav, dead, though he was actually an absconder and hiding in an army hospital in New Delhi. Senior army officers said it was at the Srinagar headquarters of the 15 Corps or Northern Command headquarters in Udhampur that the goof up happened.
These findings further indicate that the then Indian Army Chief General V.P Malik tendered an apology, while the Defence Ministry accepted the mistake. Chief of Army Staff General VP Malik ordered an inquiry and warned of severe punishment for those responsible for the outrageous mistake but nothing has happened till today but on the other side, Yoginder was not deprived of the award until the outcomes of the inquiry committee, which never came up with any conclusion, enabling an absconder to enjoy the honour of being PVC recipient, though he has never been any out of the turn promotion etc, to recognize his “bravery” while such promotions and benefits otherwise come as a package for a PVC recipient in India.
The Daily Mail’s investigations indicate that recommendation for any gallantry award for a soldier is initiated by the commanding officer of a battalion to the brigade headquarters. From the brigade headquarters it is passed on after scrutiny to the divisional headquarters and from there to the corps headquarters. From the corps, after detailed discussion and correlation of the claims, it is the send to the command headquarters, where from it is forwarded to the army headquarters in New Delhi but it appears that in the Kargil case, everybody did everything on emergency basis, without following the set proceedures and thus committed serious blunders.
“The Param Vir Chakra is awarded for rarest of the rare gallantry which is beyond the call of duty and which in normal life is considered impossible to do, but it seems that these pre-requisites never came under consideration in the process of awarding awards to Kargil fighters of Indian army, “a former officer of the Indian army and now attached with a defence related think tank at New Delhi. He said a gallantry award is given for a particular act, and a soldier could win more than one gallantry award in a war for his different actions.
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate that while the Param Vir Chakra, Maha Vir Chakra, Vir Chakra, Sena Medal and Mention in Despatches are awarded to soldiers who go out to the field and fight the battle, for leadership qualities senior officers are selected for Sarvottam Yudh Seva Medal, Uttam Yudh Seva Medal and Yudh Seva Medal. After the Kargil conflict, Sarvottam Yudh Seva Medal was awarded to the chief of Western Command of the Indian Air Force, Air Marshal Vinod Patney, who is so far the second officer in Independent India’s history to be awarded this honour.
The Daily Mail’s findings disclose that just like Grenadier Yadav’s case, Rifleman Sanjay Kumar was also falsely citied for bravery by his field commanders as he was seriously wounded after receiving bullets on chest as well as at the arms and was retrieved by the medical units in unconsciousness from the foot of a hill during the ceasefire hours.
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate the a committee, that was formed to review the Kargil citations after the Yadav episode, disclosed that Rifleman Sanjay Kumar was also a fake hero., Kumar, in the meantime, was elevated to the rank of lance Naik and then to the rank of Havildar. In the light of the recommendations of the review committee, the Indian army decided not to make the new PVC blunder public and decided to hush-up the matter. However, later Kumar was not only demoted to the rank of Lance Naik but was also subjected to grave snubbing and humiliation by his seniors, making life miserable for the otherwise PVC recipient, in the army.
The Daily Mail’s investigations reveal that the prestigious PVC recipient Lance Naik Kumar has been humiliated so much that he has finally decided to quit the army and to opt for a private or civil job as he was a driver by profession before joining army.
The Indian Army sources confirm that Kumar has been offered a job by the Himachal Pradesh government, indicating that the disgraced soldier was planning to quit the Army. “Kumar is looking forward to completing his mandatory 17 years service in the Army and then take up another job. Himachal Pradesh government has offered him a good job, but he cannot leave without completing the mandatory years of service,” said a senior official of the Indian Army, Brigadier R Vohra of the personnel directorate at the army headquarters.
Major Gen (retd) Sheru Thapliyal, who was military advisor during the Kargil operation refused to comment over the issue when contacted by The Daily Mail. Maj Gen Thapliyal had recommended promotion for the gallantry award winners. However repeated attempts to elicit a response from the Ministry of Defence over phone, e-mail by The daily Mail proved futile while the Army also refused to comment over the issue.
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate that Indian Military Intelligence and Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) have been making numerous efforts to defend the image of the fake heroes of Kargil. These findings indicate that as a top effort, RAW drafted the script of a Bollywood movie titled, LoC Kargil and completely financed the same with theme to project both Yadav and Kumar as war heroes of Kargil conflict, though the movie came as a supper dupper flop on the box office despite a galaxy of Indian showbiz stars featuring in it.
By the Grace of Allah, We (Pakistani) have many Real Heroes of Kargil and We never forget them at any Cost.
