5 December 1971, Risaldar Brahma Nand, commanding a troop of a squadron of cavalry, was guarding the Mandiala crossing in the Chhamb Sector. His troop was heavily attacked by enemy armour and infantry, but he held onto his position foiling all attempts of the enemy to capture the crossing before our own troops had crossed over safely. In the encounter, he destroyed five enemy tanks.  

In this action, Risaldar Brahma Nand displayed commendable initiative, courage and determination of a high order.
