Details :

Flt Lt Neti Shiv Ram Krishna has been on the posted strength of one of the Helicopter Units since 12 Jul 89.

Flt Lt Krishna was the detachment Commander of the Mi-8 detachment at Tri-ncomallee. On the morning of 14 Sep 89, he was given the task of induction of troops immediately into the jungles near Kattukulam in order to take on the LTTE militants hiding in these jungles in heavy concentrations. There was only a very small clearing where landing could be undertaken with great difficulty. Anticipating that troops may be required to be landed in large numbers, Flt Lt Krishna decided in consultation with the army officer on board, to land at another lake bed (Kattukulam), about 2 Kms north-west of the designated landing zone.

On the night of 14 Sep 89, Flt Lt Krishna who in anticipation, had kept his helicopter in readiness for casualty evacuation was given the task to evacuate some casualties who were seriously wounded from Kattukulum area. The mission entailed flying on a dark night with marginal weather. He executed the landing with tremendous skill, professional ability and courage, putting down the helicopter in a clearing barely sufficient for the helicopter and covered by ditches.

For his exemplary courage, dedication to duty, judgment, professional excellence and sense of involvement, the President is pleased to award Yuddh Seva Medal to Flt Lt Neti Shiv Ram Krishna.
