September 12th, 1965
Zafarwal Sector


These were the late hours of night when the Major, the Commander of A Company received the information about the presence of enemy in his area. The informant was a civillian who had just seen a large body of Indian soldiers, resting in a Nullah. Having such an enemy strength meant nothing but Indian raid on the Pakistani positions. It was 5th Gorkha Battalion of Indian Army.

Time was crucial and having any delay could result fatal, so Major decided to take a meaningful action. Taking a handful of his SSG comrades and a number of jeeps fitted with appropriate weapons, he decided to deliver a blow to the enemy.

Enemy company had no idea that what surprise they are going to get. Before anyone could even think of it, Major and his men reached the enemy Position and laid heavy fire. Having no idea about the situation, enemy couldn't respond and had huge casualties. They had no chance but to retaliate, so they started with drawing. Within no time, nothing was left in the nullah but the weapons and supplies of the enemy which they had to leave in order to run faster.

This gallant action told the enemy that Zafarwal is a hard nut to crack. Major was awarded Sitara e Jurrat for his action. Later he retired as a four star General.

Today the world knows him as General Shamim Alam Khan, the former CJCSC of Pakistan Army.
