It is a fact of history that the Indian Air Force did not take part in the operations. It has never been satisfactorily explained as to why the IAF was not used in close support operations. Who took the fatal decision not to deploy the IAF. Was it Nehru, the Army Chief General Thapar or the Air Chief. There is no answer to this question. Perhaps the only plausible answer is that fear of the unknown and retaliation by the PLAAF based in Tibet may have clouded the thought process. This shows a psychosis of fear that at that time pervaded the Indian Government and Armed Forces.

Lance Naik Karam Singh and his company were surrounded by enemy fire and it was impossible for them to break out. He crawled from one place to another motivating his troops to keep fighting. Whenever he saw that enemies were coming closer he would push them back with grenades. He was wounded twice but he refused to leave the post and kept fighting. The fifth attack by the enemy was very strong. Two intruders came very close to his post and it was impossible for him to take them out without accidentally hitting his own troops. So he jumped out of his position and killed those intruders in a hand-to-hand combat.
