Not his, Nihang Sahib wears a random assembly:

Top: (probably) 25th Independence Anniversary Medal (maybe Sangram Medal?) / Raksha Medal 1965 ???

Bottom: 25th Independence Anniversary Medal; Samar Seva Sear 1965 or one of the 1971 (Poorvi/Paschimi) Stars / Samar Seva Sear 1965 or one of the 1971 (Poorvi/Paschimi) Stars; 25th Independence Anniversary Medal

He has gone for symmetry over wearing "his" group. Though it is distantly possible that there is a group here with duplicate anniversary gong?

What's the reverse on the Wound Medal? Isn't it the chakhra as well?

Yes, but the lower right clearly has dates above and below. Upper left image is too muddy to be sure about much - couild be Wound, Sangram, or 25th Anniv. The Wound Medal (now inexplicably renamed the "Parakram Padak") has a plain, rather elegant, chakra as the reverse. If (a bit IF) this has a group at the core, there'd be a Sangram Medal.
