|Details :|| |
Flying Officer (Now Squadron Leader) Narsimha Murthy (2434) operated in Jammu and Kashmir theater with distinction during 1948. In spite of meeting heavy enemy fire, he persistently operated with singleness of purpose showing relentless courage and exemplary devotion to duty and completed about 100 ground attack sorties.
In one of these sorties, when his aircraft under-carriage was badly damaged by enemy fire and emitted fumes, he persisted for 45 minutes in an attempt to get the under-carriage of the aircraft down in order to save the valuable fighter plane.
For the good service rendered by him during the Kashmir Operations he has been awarded the Vir Chakra.
