During
the Kashmir Operations soon after the birth of Pakistan, as Company
Commander of the 2nd Battalion of the Punjab Regiment, Captain Sarwar

fortified enemy position in the Uri Sector under heavy machine gun,
grenade and mortar fire. But on the 27th July 1948, as he moved forward

spotted the enemy digging in along a minefield near the village of
Harar Khurd in December 1971 on his own initiative he directed accurate
fire at the enemy resulting in the destruction of sixteen of their

Sector in East Pakistan where his company was pinned down by unceasing
frontal and cross fire from automatic weapons. Although his machine gun
was destroyed by an enemy shell, Mahfuz advanced towards an enemy
bunker whose automatic fire had inflicted heavy casualties. Even though
wounded in both legs by shell splinters, when he reached the bunker he
stood up and pounced on the enemy, but was hit. Although unarmed and
amidst the enemy, he caught hold of one of the enemy and was strangling
him when another bayoneted him to death during the night of 17th
December 1971.

located at the jagged peak in May 1999. Hav. Lalak driven back many
aggressive ventures by the enemy and imposed colossal losses on them.

area with heavy mortar shelling. But despite being injured, he retained
his position and frustrated the Indian assault. He, however, succumbed
to his injuries at the same post he was defending. Hav. Lalak was
awarded with the Nishan-i-Haider for his dauntless courage and devotion.





Captain Karnal Sher Khan Shaheed

Captain
Karnal Sher and Hav. Lalak Jan joined those eight legendary heroes who
received the highest military award of Nishan-i-Haider for laying down
their lives in defence of the beloved motherland. Captain Karnal Sher
Khan emerged as the symbol of mettle and courage during the Kargil
conflict on the Line of Control (LoC). He set personal examples of
bravery and inflicted heavy losses on the enemy. He defended the five
strategic posts, which he established with his jawans at the height of
some 17,000 feet at Gultary, and repulsed many Indian attacks. After
many abortive attempts, the enemy on July 5 ringed the post of Capt.
Sher Khan with the help of two battalion and unleashed heavy mortar
firing and managed to capture some part of the post. Despite facing all
odds, he lead a counter-attack and re- captured the lost parts. But
during the course he was hit by the machine-gun fire and embraced
Shahadat at the same post. He is the first officer from the NWFP
