INTERDICTION AT GURDASPUR  



INTERDICTION AT GURDASPUR
1965


  On 13 September 1965, Four Sabers led by Squadron Leader Alauddin Ahmad on their second offensive patrol over Indian Lines of communication, attacked a long line of freight wagons at Gurdaspur railway yard. The Sabers' rockets and guns soon yielded some spectacular explosions as the ammunition wagons received direct hits. Squadron Leader Ahmad's F-86 was struck by fragments of an exploding train after he had fired a salvo of rockets. Despite a radio call from him that he was ejecting from his disabled F-86, this superb intrepid pilot never returned from this mission. He was awarded a posthumous Sitara-i-Jurat for his exemplary aggressiveness, combat leadership and valour.
