Vir Chakra (VrC)
Awardee: Rfn Anusuya Prasad, VrC

Gazette Notification: 18 Pres/2000,15-8-99
Operation: Op Savage (Sikkim)
Date of Award: 15 Aug 1999

On 28 June 1999, Rifleman Anusuya Prasad was part of Charlie Company, which was tasked to capture an objective at Point 4700 in the Drass Sector during 'Operation Vijay'. Point 4700 was heavily fortified with eight sangars firing automatic weapons. The advance could not progress despite several attempts due to heavy automatic fire from a sangar in the direction of the assault. Unmindful of his personal safety, he assaulted the sangar. Taking cover of huge boulders against automatic enemy fire and lobbing grenades, he got into the sangar to find three infiltrators. In a fierce hand-to-hand fight, he killed the three infiltrators, slitting the throat of two and charging one with the bayonet. In the encounter, he too received multiple bullet injuries and succumbed to his injuries. Rifleman Anusuya Prasad displayed camaraderie, exceptional bravery, conspicuous gallantry and dogged determination in the face of the enemy and made the supreme sacrifice in the highest traditions of the Indian Army.
