Upon his insertion in Manipur, Major Rawat was quick to recognize the importance of accurate intelligence in combating the Valley Based Insurgent Groups (VBIGs). With a clear vision and a strategic approach, he established an innovative intelligence network that meticulously mapped the activities and plans of these insurgent groups.

Through painstaking efforts, his network penetrated the veil of secrecy that these groups operate under, providing crucial information that would prove to be a linchpin in their subsequent engagements.

In one notable operation, Major Rawat’s intelligence network uncovered plans by the VBIGs to target a VIP visiting Manipur. Acting on this intelligence, he masterfully orchestrated a counter-operation by misleading the insurgents into an ambush laid by his own forces.

Demonstrating superlative skills and raw courage, he himself crawled to a flank, eliminating a Self-Styled Captain and injuring another, both of whom were masterminds behind an ambush on the Assam Rifles.
