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.

18 May 1948. Third battalion of Garhwal Rifles less one company was given the task of securing the Trahgam ridge. Lt Col Kaman Singh took upon himself to lead this attack against very heavy resistance. Rfn Guman Singh was one of the bravehearts of this Company. While the attack was on, Lt Col Kaman Singh with total disregard to heavy enemy firing, continuosly went up to his forward platoons constantly encouraging his men. Later, his battalion less two companies was again given the task of carrying out a raid on a strongly held position on the Buni ridge beyond Tithwal. In spite of heavy fire, the attack was carried out with such precession and speed that enemy fled in utter consternation leaving behind many dead and wounded. Lt Col Kaman Singh and Rfn Guman Singh displayed indomitable resolve, grit and determination throughout the operation for which they were both awarded #MahavirChakra and #VirChakra respectively #ThisDayThatYear #BraveSonsOfIndia
