On 10 August 2001, Naik Kistura Ram was a part of inner cordon around a house at Baramulla J&K where terrorists were holed up. At about 22:25 hours two terrorists tried to break corden and escape. On being confronted by outer cordon they ran back towards the house simultaneously firing from their weapons.  Naik Kistura Ram  saw the terrorists and waited for them to close in and killed one  terrorist on the spot while injuring the other terrorist who dropped his weapon and escaped in darkness.
