Operation: 1971 Cactus Lily
Date of Award: 16 Dec 1971

Citation:
Lieutenant Colonel Hanut Singh was commanding 17 Horse in Shakargarh Sector of the Western Front. On 16 December 1971, his regiment was inducted into the Basantar River bridgehead and took up positions ahead of the infantry. The enemy launched a number of armoured attacks in strength on 16 and 17 December. Undeterred by enemy medium artillery and tank fire, Lieutenant Colonel Hanut Singh moved from one threatened sector to another with utter disregard for his personal safety. His presence and cool courage inspired his men to remain steadfast and perform commendable acts of gallantry.

Throughout this period, Lieutenant Colonel Hanut Singh displayed conspicuous gallantry and leadership in keeping with the best traditions of the Army.
