On 1 September 1965, when Pakistani forces attacked our positions in the Chhamb Sector with a large number of tanks, Major Bhaskar Roy was commanding a squadron of an armoured corps regiment in that area. Undaunted by overwhelming and superior enemy armour, Major Roy employed his armour boldly and skillfully, stemmed the enemy advance and foiled the enemy's attempts to encircle the bridge. In the tank-to-tank battle, Major Roy destroyed 13 enemy tanks and disabled several others.

Throughout this operation, Major Roy displayed conspicuous bravery and leadership of a very high order in the best traditions of the Indian Army.
