Let's salute to our Indian Army together, We are proud to be Indian.

Kamlesh Kumari was an Indian constable who served with the Central Reserve Police Force (CPRF) and a recipient of the Ashoka Chakra, the highest possible award conferred during peacetime by the Republic of India. Kumari lost her life 13 December 2001 after successfully preventing terrorist gunmen and a terrorist suicide bomber from reaching Parliament during the 2001 Indian Parliament attack.

Constable Kamlesh Kumari Yadav joined the CPRF in 1994 and was first posted with the elite 104 Rapid Action Force (RAF) in Allahabad. Soon after, she was posted at the 88 Mahila (Women’s) Battalion on 12 July 2001. Kumar became part of Bravo Company, the group tasked with securing Parliament when in session.

Kamlesh Yadav was posted at Iron Gate No. 1, next to Building Gate No. 11, of the Parliament House. An Ambassador brand car, bearing the license plate number DL 3C J 1527, drove towards the gate from Vijay Chowk Yadav was the first security official to approach the car and, realising something was amiss, ran back to her post to seal the gate. The terrorists, their cover effectively blown and unable to travel further due to Kumari’s foresight, opened fire. Eleven bullets struck Kamlesh Yadav in the stomach. The attack occurred at 11:50 in the morning.

Kamlesh Yadav’s alertness prevented a suicide bomber among the terrorists from executing his plan; the closing of Gate No. 1 and the alarm raised gave time for other security personnel to take position and neutralize the would-be bomber.
