Captain Arjumand Yar Khand Shaheed ex 15 FF Regiment, embraced shahadat on December 15, 1971.

Here's a narration of his brave fight and ultimate martyrdom, by Brigadier Mehboob Qadir:

“Captain Arjumand Yar Khand was a young and very handsome officer. He was known as the ‘baby of the battalion’. After an incident involving his C.O he had volunteered to be posted to the forward most position for setting up a strong delaying position ahead of their main position to cause as much attrition and loss of time on the advancing enemy as possible. The Capt. along with a handful of men, held their ground against repeated Indian armour and infantry assaults, hours of aerial bombing and straffing for nearly three days just as Headquarters Eastern Command was negotiating terms of surrender with Calcutta. On the third day, Arjumand’s delaying position was overrun after a pitched battle; not a soul returned. That day probably on December 15th, we received orders from Eastern Command to surrender. Brigadier ‘Makhmad’ Hayat refused to obey this order and we fought on for the next three days till literally the last bullet was left in our rifle chambers. We were facing 9 Indian Mountain Division, whose officers told us the story of the incomparable bravery of Arjumand and his men after the war was over.

During three days of pitched battle, his men were being killed and seriously wounded, machine guns and anti-tank guns were being knocked out one after the other, but Arjumand and his small force stood fast. On the last day, Arjumand was the only one left in the delaying position. His men were either all martyred or seriously wounded. Attacking Sikh infantry surrounded his trench and asked him to surrender, as he was profusely bleeding from his shattered legs that had probably absorbed a direct Mortar shell hit. In dire need of medical aid, he refused. After a lot of persuasion, he finally agreed. With one hand he lifted his weapon and with the other he was about to lob a hand grenade, when they spotted him and Martyred him.

This fearless young officer died fighting extremely bravely; so much so that even the enemy was full of praises for him. They had buried him with full honor.”

All we know about Captain Arjumand Yar Khand is from enemy’s mouth as neither he nor any of his men, returned from the post which they were assigned. He was recommended for Nishan-e-Haider, but the tragic end of the war shrouded the story of this hero of the nation, who did his best till the last of his breath for the defence of the motherland."

My salutes and respects to Captain Arjumand Yar Khand Shaheed of 15 Frontier Force(MIB) Regiment.
