Rifleman Sanjay Kumar of the JAK Rifles was the leading scout of the Team that advanced to capture" Area Flat top" on 4th July 1999. Having scaled the cliff, the team was pinned down by enemy firing emanating from a bunker, 150 meters away.
With complete disregard for his personal safety, Rifleman Kumar crawled up the ledge and charged the bunker. Hit in his chest and forearm, he continued to charge. After clearing the first bunker he picked up a machine gun from a fallen enemy soldier and charged at the second enemy bunker. Three enemy soldiers were killed on the spot. The objective was finally secured as the enemy, having sustained grievous losses finally conceded defeat.
Rifleman Sanjay Kumar was honoured with the Param Vir Chakra for his inspiring Gallantry and act of Courage.
