Brig Devinder Singh is a hero who was wronged.
Misrepresentation of his battle performance cost him a war medal and possibly led to his being passed over for promotion as Major-General. May have even missed a shot at becoming army chief because of internal politics. (Thread)
The Armed Forces Tribunal upheld claims that top commanders (including then GOC 15 Corps, Lt Gen Pal) falsified accounts of battles in the Batalik sector, where Brig Devinder Singh was operating and in command. Here's my report from May 2010 when the order was made public.

Few know that ABV led NDA govt decisively failed on many fronts during the #Kargil conflict

Yes, India won the conflict

But we paid a huge price

Govt grossly underreported the death of soldiers and officers during the conflict and only shared full figures in 2002
The conflict went on for over 2 months

It was an occupation of Indian territory by Pakistan but PM Atal hesitated to declare war

Even when India finally reclaimed the lost territories, Indian Army was not allowed to cross LoC and hunt down the enemy
