Citation:
Naib Subedar Bhrigunath Singh was a platoon commander in a battalion of Brigade of Guards which was assigned the task of capturing a strongly held area In the Kargil Sector. During the attack his platoon, which was leading the assault, was held up due to heavy enemy automatic fire. With utter disregard for his personal safety, he rushed towards the enemy machine gun post and though wounded by a burst from the machine gun, succeeded in neutralising the gun, and thus enabled the objective to be captured.

In this action, Naib Subedar Bhrigunath Singh displayed gallantry, leadership and devotion to duty of a high order.
