Interdiction at Gurdaspur

Headquarters Air Defence Command

Description:
On 13 September 1965, four Sabres led by Squadron Leader Alauddin "Butch" Ahmad on their second offensive patrol over Indian lines of communication, attacked a long line of freight wagons at Gurdaspur railway yard. The Sabres' 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-e-jurat for his exemplary aggressiveness, combat leadership and valour.
