Born on September 9, 1974, in Palampur, Himachal Pradesh, Captain Vikram Batra was a brave soldier of India, bowing to the bravery of Captain Vikram Batra, who sacrificed his life to the country in the Kargil war, and was honoured with the Param Vir Chakra, the highest honour of the Army. He started his military career on December 6, 1997, with 13 Jammu and Kashmir Rifles of the Indian Army.

The Kargil war was going on at that time, which is why Lt. Vikram Batra was posted in the Kargil war zone as soon as his commando training was over.  On June 1, 1999, Lt. Vikram Batra along with his unit took the lead against the Dushman Sena. In the early battle, Lt. Vikram Batra captured the area by killing enemies on the peaks of the hump and rock nab. Impressed by his bravery, he was made lieutenant to captain. Captain Vikram Batra was then given the responsibility of hoisting the Indian flag by freeing 5140 points from the Duman Sena, a very close position on the Srinagar-Leh route.

Captain Vikram Batra, showing his amazing combat skills and bravery, captured the point at around 3.30 am on June 20, 1999. After this success, he was given a target of hoisting the Indian flag at 4875 points by military officers. But on this mission, one of his fellow lieutenants, Lt. Naveen, was shot in the leg, Captain Batra ran towards his partner, pulling his partner Naveen when a bullet from his enemies hit his chest, he died saying 'Jai Mata Di' and attained valour. Due to his indomitable courage, he was awarded the Param Vir Chakra on August 15, 1999.
