SERGEANT (NOW WO) RAM CHANDRA DUA (21075)

Sgt Ram Chandra Dua whilst attending Mahatma Gandhi’s Prayer Meeting at 1500 hours on the 20th January, 1948 displayed outstanding initiative and courage in pursuing and successfully apprehending Madan Lal.

Madan Lal after throwing a bomb at Mahatma Gandhi was running away and threatened to kill Sgt Ram Chandra Dua when the latter intercepted him.   Completely disregarding his own safety Sgt Ram Chandra Dua held on to Madan Lal till the arrival of the Police.  Madan Lal when searched was found to be in possession of a live grenade, which he was taking out of his pocket when Sgt Ram Chandra Dua apprehended him.
