Date of Award: 02 Nov 1965

On the night of 2 November 1965 a company of Dogra Regiment in which Captain G. Mubayi was commanding a platoon in the Mendhar Sector, J&K, was ordered to take possession of a strongly defended feature which notwithstanding the ceasefire had been encroached upon by Pakistani force. When the company was held up due to intensive enemy fire, Captain Mubayi volunteered to breakthrough with his platoon to establish a bridgehead. He crawled forward, cut the wire himself and led his platoon forward through the minefields. He was wounded severely in the leg by a mine but unmindful of his injury, he kept moving forward. By this bold action, he established a bridgehead. Captain Mubayi showed indomitable courage and inspiring leadership and made the supreme sacrifice in the best traditions of the Indian Army.
