Awardee: Sep Sukh Ram, VrC

Gazette Notification: 72 Pres,66,30-9-66
Operation: 1965 Riddle
Date of Award: 06 Sep 1965

On 6 September 1965 when Sepoy Sukh Ram's section was leading an attack on a well-defended enemy post in the Poonch Sector, his company came under heavy enemy fire, which rendered further advance impossible. Sepoy Sukh Ram rushed forward with four grenades. In spite of stiff opposition, he managed to close in, dropped two grenades in an enemy trench and destroyed an LMG. He then dashed to another LMG and lobbed a grenade at the enemy manning the LMG. While doing so, he got two bursts of LMG fire in his head and chest as a result of which he died.

Sepoy Sukh Ram displayed exemplary courage, initiative and determination of a high order.
