Sqn Ldr Flt Lt Robindra Kumar Sinha, Vr.C


During the India-Pakistan war in December 1971, Flt Lt Robindra Kumar Sinha flew a number of operational missions. Some of these were for photo/visual reconnaissance deep inside the enemy territory, and the information brought by him helped to plan subsequent strike missions which successfully destroyed enemy targets.

He also flew many operational missions in support of our ground forces in the Chhamb-Jaurian sector and destroyed four enemy tanks and several vehicles despite heavy ground fire and air opposition.

Throughout, Flt Lt Sinha displayed gallantry, professional skill and devotion to duty of a high order.
