On 20th January 1945, a boy was born in Ghiri Banelsyun village. Little did his family knew that one day, this boy will become ‘The Man behind Surgical Strike’. In 2004-2005 he had served as the Director of the Intelligence Bureau. He is fifth and current National Security Advisor to the Prime Minister of India. India’s real-life James Bond is a retired member of the Indian Police Service. He graduated with a master’s degree in economics from the Agra University in 1967.
Who is he and what are his achievements?
The mastermind of surgical strike is Ajit Doval who turned 76 today. He was good at studies during his school days and had won many prizes for the same. Now, he is good at his work and is recognized by the whole nation. India’s Surgical Strike of 2016, as well as Balakot airstrikes across the border in Pakistan, were conducted under the supervision of Doval.
He had also played an important role in gathering intelligence for ‘Operation Blue Star’ to choke Khalistani Khalistani militancy in 1984. He won many awards in his career. He was one of the youngest police officer to receive the Police Medal for meritorious service. Doval was granted one of the highest gallantry awards, the Kirti Chakra also.
2 times when he brought back trapped Indians
In 2014, when Indian nurses were trapped in a hospital in Tikrit, Iraq, their families had lost all their hope to see their daughters again. They lost all contact from these nurses, following the capture of Mosul by ISIL. At this time, Doval played a crucial role in ensuring the secure return of 46 Indian nurses.
Similarly, on 27 February 2019, the tension between India and Pakistan rose after the Indian Air Force airstrike in Pakistan. Later, Pakistan Airstrike in India and captured one of the Indian Pilot, Abhinandan Varthaman. The Indian Pilot was released on the next day by Pakistan. Indians termed the return of the pilot as a major victory. Ajit Doval talked with US Secretary of State and National Security Advisor to secure the release of the Indian pilot. It was him, who helped India’s son to come back to his country. Ajit Doval is surely a brilliant officer. His brilliance can be seen in his works.
