Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan a brave Hero

Neha Unnikrishnan’s husband Major Sandeep was not just an ordinary soldier in the Indian army but was an elite commando. He was part of the National Security Guard (NSG) commando group, otherwise known as Black Cat Commandos, a specialized unit that deals with counter-terrorism in India.

He joined the Indian army in 1995 and became a Lieutenant in the Bihar Infantry regiment in 1999. He then joined NSG in 2007 when he was promoted to the rank of Major.

2008 Mumbai Attacks and Role of Major Sandeep

26 of November was a dark day not just for Neha Unnikrishnan but for all Indians when a group of terrorists unleashed hell in Mumbai and killed 175 people in a span of three days. It was a state of utter chaos in Mumbai when Major Sandeep led the 51 Special Action Group into action to stop the terrorists at the Taj Palace Hotel.

He valiantly engaged the terrorist and cleared the hotel room by room and during the course of the firefight he was shot multiple times, yet he kept on fighting. However, his wounds proved to be too much and he succumbed to his injuries later that day.

He along with other heroes who gave their lives during that dark period was honored by the government and he was posthumously awarded the Ashoka Chakra, the highest peacetime gallantry award in India. On his behalf, it was his family who accepted the award.

We now ask ourselves where Neha Unnikrishnan is now and the answer is, ever since she lost her husband, she has lived a quiet life away from the limelight and fanfare. She now resides in Dubai, UAE, however we don’t know what she does there, or who she resides with.

Neha Unnikrishnan’s Children and Age

Although a former actress and TV host, not much is known about Neha’s life while she was married to Major Sandeep and especially now that Major Sandeep is gone. So much so that we don’t even know when she was born or if they both had any kids.

In the true spirit of an army wife and now an army widow, she has chosen to honor her husband and in essence all the brave heroes of this nation by living a quiet life away from the fanfare, and by doing so she is keeping the memory of Major Sandeep alive and honoring him every day.

Is Major Sandeep’s wife married again?

Just as with all the other details of her life, she has also kept this part private and we have no information if Neha Unnikrishnan ever got married again. Considering that she was still very young when her husband was martyred, it is perfectly fine for her to get married again. However, knowing her and the brave widows like her, we wouldn’t be surprised if she chose not to marry again.

Bollywood depiction of Major Sandeep and Neha Unnikrishnan

In 2022 a biopic on the life of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan was released by Director Sashi Kiran Tikka. The biopic is titled Major and follows the early life of Major Sandeep and his actions on the day of the 26/11 attacks.
