Six navy officials to get gallantry medals

New Delhi, Aug 14 (UNI) A total of six naval personnel will be conferred gallantry medals on the occasion of 73rd Independence Day on Thursday.
"One Shaurya Chakra and five Nao Sena Medal will be awarded to the navy personnel," the Indian Navy said in a release.
Sailor Amit Singh Rana will be awarded Shaurya Chakra. The sailor was deployed for Op Rakshak in J&K, since May 2018.
In two, back to back operations, Op Danna & Shok Baba where eight foreign terrorists were eliminated, the sailor had performed exceptionally well. In Op Danna, he as buddy of Lt Cdr Mahesh Kumar, shot dead one terrorist at extreme close quarters whilst giving cover to the Officer, who shot dead another terrorist, the navy said.
On Septemeber 20-21 he was involved in Op Shok Baba alongwith 14 RR in a Cordon and Search Operation, where 5-6 terrorists were entrapped in a house at village Shok Baba. Despite firing heavy calibre weapons and grenades, the terrorists remained protected in the mud house/ cow shed. At this juncture, AS Rana and team volunteered to approach the cow shed with a heavy IED to destroy it.
As a heavy volume of fire was unleashed by the balance MARCOS, the brave soldier quickly manoeuvred and placed the IED at the cow shed.
Whilst manoeuvring in, he was fired upon but came out unscathed backed by close in cover fire by his buddy. The cow shed was blown up by the IED and three terrorists inside were eliminated.
