During the initial volley of enemy fire, Sepoy Sushil Kumar sustained an injury and Naik Anil Kumar manning Medium Machine Gun immediately retaliated the fire. He promptly lifted and brought the Medium Machine Gun out from the bunker and effectively engaged the remaining terrorists, thereby causing casualties to one terrorist and beating back the others. In the ensuing firefight, Naik Anil Kumar also sustained a burst of fire. Regardless of personal safety and with single-minded purpose, he continued to provide covering fire for other comrades to react and engage the enemy. Later, Naik Anil Kumar succumbed to his injuries on 25th September 2012 at AH(R&R) Hospital.   

Naik Anil Kumar was given the award of ‘Shaurya Chakra’ posthumously.
