March 4, 2018, Sunday was a day to remember for heroic jawan – Gomji Mattami.
Gomji Mattami, an ordinary commando turned into a superhero as he made four armed Maoists flee with fear even after stabbed in his chest.
BRAVE JAWAN GOMJI MATTAMI
33-years-old, C-60 Commando Police, Gomji Mattami from Madska village is posted at Gadchiroli headquarters, Maharashtra, India.
To tell more about Mattami, he took part in as many numbers of encounters equal to his age as the district police since 2006.
This Sunday incident is more daring for Mattami than the previous ones. Mattami escaped death too closely and also showcased his own lion-hearted will.
The weekly market in Jambia Gatta was called off. Gomji Mattami along with his squad was returning to the area police post.
When rest of his squad walked ahead, Mattami stopped midway after seeing his classmate in the market.
This is when an ‘Action Team’ of 4 Maoists surrounded Mattami at Jambia Gatta in Etapalli Taluka, Gadchiroli as reported by Times of India.
Mattami remembered the incident and said,
One of them pulled out a pistol pointing at me and pulled the trigger. It failed to fire. It was all happening in a flash.
If not for the trigger snag, Mattami would be certainly dead by now.
At this point, I was trying to free myself while keeping a hold on my weapon and magazines. I knew their intention was to gun me down before fleeing with my weapon. I kicked the man with the gun which fell off his hand.
He also revealed,
Suddenly one of them stabbed me in the chest with a dagger. The pain loosened my grip over my weapon (AK 47) which he managed to snatch and flee. I got up and began to run after them aiming not to allow them to run away with my weapon.
As said by Mattami, he then pounced on the guerrilla who had his weapon and snatched it by force.
Strong build Mattami then battled with him and also fired at them mindful of the crowd around.
THE VALIANT ACT
Mattami is now recovering quickly at the Orange City Hospital and Research Institute (OCHRI).
The police department is all praises and proud of Mattami.
He just hasn’t saved his own weapon but also managed to get a firearm and 10 live cartridges of the goons. Remember, he did all these after getting stabbed deep in his chest.
We are sure that Mattami will be back to his duty very soon. In fact, the Police department needs more jawans like him.
