During an assault on the enemy held post in an area in the Eastern Sector, his platoon was held up in front of two enemy bunkers due to heavy and accurate fire. Half of the men in his platoon had either been killed or wounded. Undeterred, he went from man to man collecting ammunition of those who had been killed and wounded and distributing it among those still fighting. Finding that his platoon could not advance due to close proximity and fire of the enemy, Havildar Budhi Bhallabh crawled up to the enemy bunker with a view to destroying it, but was hit by a machine gun burst and was killed on the spot. His steadfastness, courage and personal example inspired his troops to charge the enemy and capture the objective.

In this action, Havildar Budhi Bhallabh displayed gallantry, leadership and determination of a high order.
