The Citation for Vir Chakra reads him to : 
Captain Jatinder Nath Sud was in command of a platoon which was rushed to assist in repulsing the enemy counter-attack in Pirganj in the Eastern Sector on the night of 7 December 1971. After positioning his weapons, he rushed up to two of our MMG detachments which were under heavy enemy mortar and small arms fire and took personal charge of the detachments and engaged the enemy. At 5 a.m. the next day, the enemy led by their commanding officer crept up to 20 yards made a desperate assault on the two MMG posts and managed to destroy one of them. Captain Sud sensing the danger to the other gun rushed out of his trench and assaulted the enemy. He was hit by a burst of automatic fire. By his act of valour, he saved his medium machine gun and helped his comrades to break the enemy attack.
In this action, Captain Sud displayed gallantry, leadership, and devotion to duty of a high order.
