Operation: 1971 Cactus Lily
Date of Award: 05 Dec 1971

Major Daljeet Singh Sra, commanding a company of Mahar Regiment, was detailed to establish a roadblock behind an enemy defensive position in an area in the Western Sector. Soon after the company column entered the enemy, held territory, the leading platoon was fired at by an enemy machine gun. Major Sra ordered the other two platoons to get into firing positions and himself moved up to the area where the leading troops were held up by enemy fire. 

At great personal risk he reformed his column and proceeded on his mission taking a different route. This timely and courageous action of Major Sra led to this successful establishment of the roadblock which inflicted heavy casualties on the enemy and resulted in the capture of 12 Pakistani soldiers.

In this action, Major Sra displayed commendable courage, determination, and leadership.
