Vir Chakra (VrC)
Awardee: Hav Chand Singh, VrC

Gazette Notification: 131 Pres/65, 10.5.65
Operation: 1965 Riddle
Date of Award: 06 Sep 1965

Naik Chand Singh was the leading section commander in the assault by two companies on Raja picquet, a well-fortified defended locality of the enemy across the ceasefire line in the Poonch Sector. At about 0600 hours on 6 Sep 1965, when the companies were at a distance of about 50 yards from the objective, their progress was halted by intense enemy fire. Although in the direct line of fire, Naik Chand Singh rushed forward to the enemy machine gun post, threw grenades into the bunkers and killed the gunners. This gallant action of the NCO made the assault a success and the Raja picquet was captured without many casualties on our side. 

In this action, Naik Chand Singh displayed courage, leadership and determination of high order in the best traditions of the Indian Army.
