Narendra Singh Chaudhary, also known as ‘Steel Man’, passed away 2 weeks ago due to a failed grenade testing at the Jungle Warfare College, Chhattisgarh. Martyr amongst his team, and hero in the squad, Chaudhary always took the fall for his team, keeping them out of sight and harm, he’s diffused 256 bombs alone.

The 48-year-old could walk for 50 kilometers without a drop to drink or a crumb to eat. When asked for his one greatest weakness, his squad would answer in unison; “One cup of tea”.

Chaudhary was from Raipur, Rajasthan and was a bomb squad trainer for 11 years. Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh paid tribute to one of the most finely trained men of the squad and offered his deepest condolences to his devastated family.

On his 11 year journey, Chaudhary had saved the lives of thousands of people, he was even suspected to be on the ‘Hit List’ of the Naxalites. It is saddening to hear the loss of such a fine man and an even greater officer.

It is a shame, that his death were to occur in such situations, as it was later uncovered that 48-year-old hero’s death could have been prevented, as it was only a test grenade that had set off. After all the service they have done to this country and to it’s people, officers are still not given safer and stimulated situations as tests, instead life-threatening equipment even during supposed ‘safe’ demonstrations for training.
