Head Constable Mohinder Singh was commanding a section post in the Border Security Force position in the Western Sector. On 3 December 1971, the enemy attacked this post with two rifle companies supported by divisional artillery fire. Head Constable Mohinder Singh inspired his men to stand and fight. The enemy reached the wire obstacles surrounding his post. Undaunted and with utter disregard for his personal safety, he ran out of his trench and rallying his men charged at the enemy, killing four of them with his sten gun. He continued to fight till he was seriously wounded by enemy LMG fire as a result of which he died. 

In this action, Head Constable Mohinder Singh displayed gallantry and determination of a high order.
