Vir Chakra (VrC)
Awardee: Capt Jagdish Chander Gosain, VrC

Gazette Notification: 124 Pres72,16-12-72
Operation: 1971 Cactus Lily
Date of Award: 14 Dec 1971

On the night of 13 December 1971, Captain Jagdish Chander Gosain was detailed as forward observation officer with a leading company in the attack on an enemy defended area in the Western Sector. The attack was held up due to effective fire from cement concrete bunkers. Captain Gosain, therefore, stood in the lethal zone of own shells as well as that of the enemy to effectively direct our own artillery fire.

Later he assumed command of the company and assaulted the bunkers in broad daylight along with 40 other ranks. In this action, Captain Gosain displayed gallantry, leadership, and determination and made the supreme sacrifice for the call of duty in keeping with the best traditions of our Army.
