Operation: 1971 Cactus Lily
Date of Award: 11 Dec 1971

Naib Subedar Arjun Jadav was commanding a platoon in the Eastern Sector which, after capturing a bridge, was reorganising on the objective. Before trenches could be dug, the enemy regrouped quickly and counter-attacked in strength supported by mortars and medium machine guns. Though outnumbered, Naib Subedar Jadav encouraged his men and the first attack was repulsed, inflicting heavy casualties on the enemy. In the second attack, one of his men was seriously wounded. With utter disregard for his safety, he rushed out in the open and brought the wounded soldier to a place of safety.

Throughout, Naib Subedar Arjun Jadav displayed gallantry, determination and leadership of a high order.
