Vir Chakra (VrC)
Awardee: Sub Chhering Stobdan, VrC

Gazette Notification: 113Pres/98,15-8-99
Operation: Op Savage (Sikkim)
Date of Award: 1999

On 30 May 1999, Subedar Chhering Stobdan was inducted as part of a team of eight men into an extremely inhospitable and high altitude terrain with heights ranging from 16,000 to 18,000 feet to evict armed Pakistani intruders in Batalik sub-sector during "Operation Vijay". While moving towards the enemy position, Subedar Stobdan observed enemy troops climbing up an ice wall to occupy a dominating feature from where heavy casualties could have been caused to own troops. Unmindful of his personal safety and exhibiting gallantry beyond the call of duty, Subedar Stobdan charged at the enemy and personally shot down two enemy personnel who were later identified as regular soldiers of the Pakistan army. This brave act of Subedar Stobdan ensured that the enemy was prevented from occupying the important dominating height on the Indian soil. Subedar Chhering Stobdan displayed exceptional courage and outstanding leadership under most adverse conditions in the face of the enemy.
