On 26th September 1994, Subedar Sujjan Singh’s unit had received credible inputs from intelligence sources about the presence of a group of militants in Zalurah village of the Kupwara district. The assault team of the unit immediately cordoned off the target area and began searching the dense forest. Subedar Sujjan Singh, as search party commander, spotted two hideouts. As Subedar Sujjan began moving closer to the hideout, the terrorists spotted them and started firing at them. Realizing the search party was in a difficult situation, one of the officers along with some soldiers moved towards the terrorists, to divert their attention. Subedar Sujjan charged at the terrorists through a hail of bullets. Although he received a barrage of bullets, he continued to advance, firing from his rifle. As the terrorists focused their attention on Subedar Sujjan, the other soldiers of his team were saved and got time to position themselves at vantage points. Subedar Sujjan kept firing relentlessly at the terrorists till the last bullet in his rifle. He got severely injured with enemy bullets piercing his helmet and head and later succumbed to his injuries.  

Subedar Sujjan Singh was given the nation’s highest peacetime gallantry award “Ashok Chakra” posthumously.
