Sri Doval had also played a key role in gathering intelligence for ‘Operation Blue Star’, for which he had become a rikshawala made the Khalistan Militants to believe him as Pak agent who could supply arms and ammunition for insurgency activities. But in reality after gathering the information he prepared the blue print of Golden Temple area covered by the Militants without a piece of paper. Finally, the operation Blue Star was successful to choke Khalistan militancy in 1984.

In 2014, Sri Ajit Doval ensured the release of 46 Indian nurses who were trapped in a hospital in Tikrit, Iraq. He went on a top-secret mission and flew to Iraq on June 25, 2014, to understand the position on the ground and made high-level connections in the Iraq government.
On July 5, 2014, the nurses were brought back to India. Later, Doval also headed a successful military operation in Myanmar along with the Army Chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag against National Socialist Council of Nagaland militants operating out of Myanmar.
A miracle man and God’s gift to Our Nation who could single handedly dealt with the foreign nations which are seriously in internal war and with the rogue ISIS militancy. He instead of becoming IPS officer, choose to work for the IB, RA&W went to Pakistan was there for 7 long years as undercover agent. While working in Pak he was caught by a local handler and asked him to remove his ear ring, if not you will be identified as Indian. That was his luck and never saw back in his stint as Intelligence Officer.
A James Bond who went to Tikrit, Iraq to save Indian Nurses. By that time Tikrit area is under the control of ISIS militants. He had discussions with the top brass of Iraq, Iran and other nearby national leaders to ensure safe release of those Indian Keralite nurses.
A strong man who stood like rock against the mighty (said to be) China in Doklam area and advised the PM of India not to go back till the problem resolved. For 72 days of standoff, Chaina retreated his PLA forces from Doklam a great strategy against the Super Power.
In 2019, Doval was reappointed as National Security Advisor for five more years and given a Cabinet rank in the second term of the Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government.
