This story of a major attack by Naxalites is told by a jawan present there to Dainik Bhaskar. He said that the Naxalites suddenly started firing heavily on us. Some of our companions were injured. We had kept the injured in the middle and made a circle outside and started responding to the Naxalites with bullets. Deepak saheb was constantly evacuating all of us from heavy firing. They got caught in the IED blast, saving the lives of 4 to 5 soldiers. This killed him.
There was a risk of firing and blast anywhere during the search, but Deepak was seen smiling with his companions.

Even after heavy firing and being surrounded by Naxalites, the courage of Sub Inspector Deepak of Chhattisgarh Police remained with him. They continued to help the soldiers fighting bravely.
