Mahavir Chakra (MVC)
Awardee: Lt Gen Anil Krishna Barat, PVSM, MVC (retd)

Gazette Notification: 9 Pres/52,26.1.52
Operation: 1948 Polo - Hyderabad
Date of Award: 25 Sep 1948

The enemy had surrounded Naushera and was putting in as much "lead" as he could. But Major A. Barat with calm and cool courage went on with his selfless task of giving surgical attention to the casualties, which were coming in right in the centre of the fire-swept area. His example was a source of inspiration to all his comrades.

Later, during the capture of Dhanval, Major Barat came forward and attended to casualties from 21 to 25 September 1948. Once, when he was carrying out an operation by the light of a jeep, the enemy put in an attack. He carried on with his work, while bullets were whizzing past him and shells were bursting nearby. The operation finished, he joined the troops in fighting the enemy. His personal gallantry and selfless devotion to duty were an example to all.
