More Info :
On 13th September 1965, Four Pakistani Planes bombed and strafed a goods train carrying diesel oil and other explosive materials at Gurdaspur Railway station, setting fire to the wagon containing diesel oil. The burning oil threw out huge flames and the entire area surrounding the railway track was shrouded by a thick cloud of smoke causing panic and confusion in the locality.

Collecting about 59 other NCC cadets, Sergeant Pratap Singh (No: 1148011) rushed to the scene of the fire. Unmindful of their personal safety, under the inspiring leadership of Sgt Pratap Singh, the Cadets set themselves to the task of detaching the unaffected wagons from the burning wagons and pushing the burning wagons away to a safe distance.
