|Details :|| |
Flight Lieutenant Amarjeet Singh Kullar joined a Hunter Squadron at Halwara on 7th September, 1965, during the operations against Pakistan. Within a fortnight, he carried out eight operational sorties of which seven were in close support of the army.
On 8th September, 1965, he flew in a four aircraft formation which destroyed a supply train at Raiwind railway Station. The train was carrying ammunition badly needed by the enemy forces in the Kasur region. The denial of this vital supply was a major factor in causing the withdrawal of enemy armour with very heavy losses.
During other operational sorties Flight Lieutenant Kullar destroyed or damaged at least six enemy tanks, armoured vehicles and gun emplacements. He carried out his attacks fearlessly against heavily defended enemy positions and his aircraft was hit by ground fire on three different occasions.
Throughout these operations, Flight Lieutenant Amarjeet Singh Kullar displayed courage and leadership in the best traditions of the Air Force.
