REAL-LIFE PHANTOM guns down 10 assailants


By NewsGram Staff-Writer

Exemplifying valour and sturdiness, the tale of Lance Naik Mohan Nath Goswami is nothing less than a cinematic glimpse of inspiration to many. His contribution to the nation proved his courage in the anti-terrorist missions in the Kashmir Valley. In three consecutive operations,he shot-down 10 militants and held one of them before losing his life in sake of making the mission successful.

Udhampur-based Northern Command spokesman, Col.S.D. Goswami in an official statement said,”Special Forces commando of the Indian Army Lance Naik Mohan Nath Goswami, has created a unique history of valour and dedication to duty by eliminating 10 terrorists in 11 days before laying down his life in service of the nation in the Kashmir Valley”. Mohan Nath Goswami was killed in a gunfight with militants in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara district on Thursday.


Col.S.D. Goswami further added, ” Mohan Nath himself volunteered to join the elite para commando outfit in 2002 and went on to gain the reputation of being one of the toughest soldiers of his unit – no small feat in an outfit that boasts of being one among the best in the world. In the last 11 days, he was actively involved in three counter-terrorism operations in the Kashmir Valley in which 10 terrorists were eliminated and one captured alive.”

Talking about Goswami’s great valour and fortitude, the spokesperson explained, ” In his first operation Goswami killed three hardcore Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) Pakistan terrorists in Khurmur, Handwara on August 23. He volunteered for a second back-to-back operation in Rafiabad, Kashmir which was conducted over two days on August 26-27. It witnessed a fierce gunfight that led to the elimination of three more LeT terrorists. Once again Goswami insisted on going to the third operation launched in the dense Hafruda forest near Kupwara on September 3. This recent mission proved to be his last one in which also he eliminated four terrorists in a heavy gun-battle.

In his last operation, Mohan Nath captured LeT terrorist Sajjad Ahmad alias Abu Ubed Ullah alive. He is a resident of Muzzafargarh, Pakistan. This further proves Pakistan’s involvement in promoting terrorism across Jammu Kashmir valley.


A similar kind of act was screened in a Bollywood feature film recently. In his latest movie ‘Phantom’, Saif Ali Khan goes around the globe and kills several militants before laying down his life. The movie was banned in Pakistan.

The brave heart heart soldier who always loved showcasing courage and heroic action, lived his last moments in action defending the nation from traitors. He is survived by his wife and a 7 year-old daughter.
