Citation:

On 25 November, 1987, when Major Ramaswamy Parameswaran was returning from a search operation in Sri Lanka, late at night, his column was ambushed by a group of militants. With cool presence of mind, he encircled the militants from the rear and charged into them, taking them completely by surprise. During the hand-to-hand combat, a militant shot him in the chest. Undaunted Major Parameswaran snatched the rifle from the militant and shot him dead. Gravely wounded, he continued to give orders and inspired his command till he fell dead. The ambush was cleared five militants were killed and three rifles and two rocket launchers were recovered.

Major Ramaswamy Parameswaran displayed the most conspicuous gallantry and thought nothing of dying at his post
