On 1 September 1965, a company of Gorkha Rifles, while proceeding to Sonemarg, was ambushed by Pakistani infiltrators. While one of its platoons was chasing the enemy uphill, an enemy LMG halted its further advance for a while. Rifleman Ghan Bahadur Sahi, who was in the right hand section, crawled forward and reached behind the LMG position and bayoneted the gunner to death. He then used the enemy LMG to chase the infiltrators away.
