Details :

Junior Warrant Officer Murugesam Sivanandam is held on the posted strength of Air Force Station Jalahali since June, 1980 and is functioning as JWOIC Police since then.

Air Force Station Jalahali is spread over a large area and includes more than 6 lodger units. JWO Sivanandam as JWO in-charge Police has taken tremendous pains to ensure adequate security in this area.

On 11 Oct 81, when a few airmen of our lodger units were involved in an affray in Ramachandra village, it was JWO Sivanandam who proceeded to the scene of affray and brought the situation under control avoiding civil police from opening fire to disperse the personnel. The effective part played by JWO Sivandanan this case is worth emulating and praise worthy.

During the month of October 1982 a gang was operating at Jalahali, robbing the abinitio trainees coming back to camp through unauthorized entry. Acting on certain clues, JWO Sivanandam investigated the case and brought all the culprits to book thus relieving the trainees from harassment.

JWO Sivanandam has played an important role in nabbing the personnel involved in the recent subversive activities at this station. He worked hard and kept vigil throughout which helped to bring the culprits to the light.

For his outstanding duty and distinguished service of high order, the President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Junior Warrant Officer Murgesam Sivanandam.
