Vir Chakra (VrC)
Awardee: Hony Capt Sujan Singh Negi, VrC

Gazette Notification: 94 Pres/72,19-8-72
Operation: 1971 Cactus Lily
Date of Award: 1971

Subedar Sujan Singh Negi was a platoon commander in a battalion of the Garhwal Rifles. A company was ordered to eliminate an enemy base in the Eastern Sector. The enemy defences on this post were formidable, protected with a 7-ft high wall and supported by heavy medium machine gun fire. Finding no route for entry into the enemy defences, Subedar Negi skillfully organised his troops into human ladders to get over the wall and close in with the enemy defences. With complete disregard for his personal safety, he jumped across the wall and led the platoon in a lightning attack, charging the enemy with bayonets and hand grenades. Fighting from bunker to bunker, he inspired and led his men to capture the enemy position.

In this action, Subedar Sujan Singh Negi displayed courage, leadership and initiative of a high order.
