During June 2020, Sepoy Gurbinder’s unit was deployed in eastern Ladakh close to the Line of Actual Control (LAC) as part of Operation Snow Leopard. Since early June the tension along the LAC was building up due to construction work in Galwan valley close to the road going from Leh to Daulat Beg Oldie. On 15th June 2020 night, restless Chinese activities were noticed in Galwan valley. Considering the seriousness of the situation, Colonel Santosh Babu the commanding officer of 16 Bihar battalion deployed in the area decided to lead the negotiations. However, the negotiation turned into altercation and altercation turned into scuffle which ultimately took the form of a violent clash with the Chinese soldiers. The clashes continued for hours and many Indian soldiers including Sepoy Gurbinder got seriously injured. Sepoy Gurbinder, Colonel Santosh Babu and 18 other soldiers later succumbed to their injuries. 

Sepoy Gurbinder Singh was awarded ‘Sena Medal’ posthumously on 26th January 2021.
