On 16 May 1965, Pakistani intruders attacked one of our posts in the Kargil Sector in J&K. The attack was repulsed and Sepoy Budh Singh's battalion was ordered to push back the intruders and capture a point. This point was a very dominating feature and was strongly held by the intruders who were bringing down accurate mortar, light machine gun and small arms fire on our troops. Sepoy Budh Singh was in the leading section of his company. When the attack was launched on the feature, Sepoy Budh Singh rushed forward aid inflicted severe injuries on quite a few of the intruders. Disregarding his own safety, he charged the intruders grenades and continued firing on them till he captured the objective.

In this action, Sepoy Budh Singh displayed courage, initiative and devotion to duty of a high order.
