Vir Chakra (VrC)
Awardee: Hony Nb Sub Agna Ram, VrC


Operation: 1948 Polo - Hyderabad
Date of Award: 08 Nov 1948

Citation:
On the night of 7 November 1948, Lance Havildar Agna Ram was the leading section commander of a forward platoon on which came under heavy automatic and machine gun fire. The enemy made liberal use of hand grenades when the platoon came to grips with them.

Though wounded by a grenade splinter, Lance Havildar Agna Ram with four jawans led a bayonet charge, killed two hostiles on the spot and finally captured the position. But for his exemplary courage, devotion to duty and sparkling leadership the feature could not have been captured so easily and the advance of the battalion to the main objective made possible.
