Details :

During the operations against Pakistan, Flight Lieutenant Chandra Sekhar Doraiswami took part in 14 operational strike missions against the enemy ground positions. In all his attacks, he displayed great determination inspite of heavy ground fire and enemy air opposition. Twice his aircraft was hit by enemy ground fire and damaged severely. Instead of returning to base, Flight Lieutenant Doraiswami continued on each occasion to press home his attacks in complete disregard of his personal safety and inflicted considerable damage on enemy armour and troops concentrations.

Throughout the operations, Flight Lieutenant Chandra Sekhar Doraiswami displayed courage, determination and professional skill of a high order.
