On 06 July 1999, Charlie Company was tasked to capture an objective, which was a part of the Pimple Complex on the Western Slopes of Point 4875, in the #MushkohValley. At the beginning of the attack, the Company Commander got injured and the command of the company devolved on Capt Nayyar.
Capt Nayyar continued to command his leading platoon into the attack under heavy enemy artillery and mortar fire. As the platoon advanced, the leading section reported location of 3 to 4 enemy positions. Capt Nayyar moved forward towards the first enemy position and fired a rocket launcher and lobbed grenades into it.

Thereafter, the section, along with Captain Nayyar, physically assaulted and cleared the position. The enemy, which was well entrenched, brought heavy volume of automatic fire. Capt Nayyar, unmindful of his personal safety, motivated his men and cleared two more enemy positions. While clearing the fourth position an enemy rocket-propelled grenade hit the officer killing him on the spot. This action led by Capt Nayyar resulted in killing nine enemy soldiers and destruction of three medium machine gun positions of the enemy. The success of this operation after a brief setback was largely due to the outstanding personal bravery and exemplary junior leadership of this daring officer.
Capt Nayyar displayed indomitable resolve, grit, and determination and motivated his command by personal example acting beyond the call of duty and made the supreme sacrifice in true traditions of the Indian Army

Join us as we remember and honour Capt Anuj Nayyar and his service and sacrifice for the Nation and convey our deepest respect to Capt Nayyar's family.

31 May 1948. Naik Nar Singh was in command of a section which was tasked to attack a hill feature. The feature was a narrow steep ledge covered with dense pine forests. The approach to this feature was along a very narrow track which was held strongly by the enemy. During this attack, Naik Nar Singh got wounded however refused to be evacuated. However, the NCO quietly slipped out and went on to lead his section. He with his bayonet jumped into enemy LMG bunker, instantly killing two of the enemy LMG gunners and capturing their guns. However, by this time Naik Nar Singh had lost lot of blood and had succumbed to his injuries. Naik Nar Singh’s supreme selfless sacrifice, devotion to duty, determination to exterminate the enemy and guts are rarest of the rare forms of gallantry. For this daring act, Naik Nar Singh was posthumously awarded #MahavirChakra #ThisDayThatYear
