|Details :|| |
Group Captain Kanwar Iqbal Singh Chhabra was commissioned in the Flying Branch (Navigator) of the Indian Air Force in April, 1950. He has held several key appointments with distinction. At present, he is the Commander of a Tactical Air Centre. During the conflict with Pakistan in December, 1971, when the enemy launched a massive attack in the ChhambÂJaurian Sector, he, working in close cooperation with the Army, planned and executed the maximum possible number of sorties out of the resources available with him. The air support to the Army not only blunted enemy attacks but contributed considerably to the destruction of his ground forces and the virtual elimination of enemy air opposition in the theatre. When the enemy tried to misguide our missions by R/T, he devised a simple authentication system which thwarted the enemy's attempts.
Throughout, Captain Kanwar Iqbal Singh Chhabra rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
