Vir Chakra (VrC)
Awardee: Nk C Subbaiyan, VrC

Gazette Notification: 55 Pres/91, 26-1-91
Operation: Op Savage (Sikkim)
Date of Award: 26 Jan 1991

Naik C. Subbaiyan was section commander in the Number 7 platoon of Charlie Company, 2 Madras deployed on Nedunkandal Bund on 30 July 1989, in Operation Pawan. At about 1130 hours, his section came under heavy fire of 40-50 automatic weapons simultaneously from different directions. He and his section immediately retaliated. During the exchange of fire, Naik Subbaiyan sustained gun shot injuries in his lower leg and thigh. Though bleeding profusely, he moved from man to man, motivating them to fight back. While doing so, he again received a gun shot injury on the lateral side of his hip. However, unmindful of his injury, he continued encouraging his men. By about 1500 hours nine persons of his group had sustained injuries and the situation appeared precarious.    

While rendering first aid to one of the injured men of his section, he received another bullet injury on his chest. Despite being seriously injured thrice Naik Subbaiyan with determination courage and bold leadership fought on till he died. Throughout the operation, which lasted for seven hours, he remained undeterred, in spite of his severe injuries, and displayed indomitable fighting spirit. Naik C. Subbaiyan displayed conspicuous gallantry and valour in the face of militants.
