D.P. Sharma, affectionately known as Deep, was an educator, thinker and professional who held a Master’s degree in Economics and English. A man of few words and very high caliber, he had traveled extensively and read prodigiously. He had served in various senior capacities in different Police and Intelligence organizations.


Commissioned in the army, Deep held high-ranking assignments in paramilitary forces, including the Special Services Bureau (now known as Sashastra Seema Bal – SSB), the National Security Guards (NSG) and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF). It was during his tenure of service in the SSB that he dealt with various insurgent groups of the northeastern states of Assam, Nagaland, Manipur and Tripura. While in the army, and later in NSG, he had close encounters with terrorism in J&K. The CISF provided him an opportunity of witnessing Naxalism from close quarters. He was a known analyst of terrorism and having spent half of his military career as an intelligence officer, most of his work was in analyzing human intelligence and deciphering complex codes, thereby being the center point of even the most secretive information within the system.


Deep wrote prolifically for various news journals and delivered lectures on topics related to terrorism in prominent institutes of India. He presented a paper on “Business Executive Protection” at an international seminar in New Delhi.


He has authored six widely acclaimed books, namely Countering Terrorism, Punjab Story: Decade of Turmoil, Kidnapping for Ransom: How to Foil, Victims of Terrorism, The New Terrorism: Islamist International and Hydra-Headed Monster. Apart from the above, he has penned down a collection of 10 short stories under the caption ‘Women Tragedies’.

Post his retirement, Deep had permanently settled down in Dehradun with his family, where he lived peacefully till his last breath. He left for his heavenly abode on 16th December 2016.
