Super Gurkha With A Kukri: Fight 40 Armed Robbers, Kills 3, Wounds 8, WINS

Via AoSHQ via Knowledge is Power from Hamro Site:

The band of about 40 robbers, some of whom were travelling as passengers, stopped the train in the Chittaranjan jungles in West Bengal around midnight. Shrestha– who had boarded the train at Ranchi in Jharkhand, the place of his posting–was in seat no. 47 in coach AC3.

“They started snatching jewelry, cell phones, cash, laptops and other belongings from the passengers,” Shrestha recalled. The soldier had somehow remained a silent spectator amidst the melee, but not for long. He had had enough when the robbers stripped an 18-year-old girl sitting next to him and tried to rape her right in front of her parents. He then took out his khukuri and took on the robbers.
“The girl cried for help, saying ´You are a soldier, please save a sister´,” Shrestha recalled. “I prevented her from being raped, thinking of her as my own sister,” he added. He took one of the robbers under control and then started to attack the others. He said the rest of the robbers fled after he killed three of them with his khukuri and injured eight others.

During the scuffle he received serious blade injury to his left hand while the girl also had a minor cut on her neck. “They had carried out their robbery with swords, blades and pistols. The pistols may have been fake as they didn´t open fire,” he surmised.
The train resumed its journey after some 20 minutes and a horde of media persons and police were present when it reached Chittaranja station. Police arrested the eight injured dacoits and recovered around 400,000 Indian rupees in cash, 40 gold necklaces, 200 cell phones, 40 laptops and other items that the fleeing robbers dropped in the train.

Police escorted Shrestha to the Railways Hospital after the rescued girl told them about his heroic deed. Mainstream Indian media carried the story. The parents of the girl, who was going for her MBBS studies, also announced a cash award of Indian rupees 300,000 for him but he has not met them since.

“Even the veins and arteries in my left hand were slit but the injury has now healed after two months of neurological treatment at the Command Hospital in Kolkata,” he said showing the scar. “Fighting the enemy in battle is my duty as a soldier; taking on the dacoits in the train was my duty as a human being,” said the Indian army nayak, who has been given two guards during his month-long holidays in Nepal.

“I am proud to be able to prove that a Gorkha soldier with a khukuri is really a handful. I would have been a meek spectator had I not carried that khukuri,” he said.

He still finds it hard to believe that he took on 40 armed robbers alone. “They may have feared that more of my army friends were traveling with me and fled after fighting me for around 20 minutes,” he explained.

TF2 players will know that face to face with no maneuver room, a sneaky robber’s knife damage output is no match for a kukri.

And RS McCain closes: He probably could’ve smoked a few more of the bastards, but he was having trouble getting down the narrow aisle between seats with his GIGANTIC B*LLS.

UPDATE: Another Gurkha, a soldier, fights off 30 Taliban alone.

    It can be say that “by kukri we can get profit in both hand” because kukri is used as weapon for self defiance from enemy whether enemy is personal or enemy of country. And kukri can be used as gift and decorative. it can used as decorative in home or office. In this way profit
    in both hand; at one hand it is weapon in other hand it is gift and decorative item.

    And effectiveness of kukri is depend upon the spirit of kukri holder. If kukri carrier(holder) is brave heart kukri can be more than Pistol. As you probably read the article entitled “Super Gurkha With A Kukri: Fight 40 Armed Robbers, Kills 3, Wounds 8, WINS”
