65 বাংলাদেশের স্বাধীনতা যুদ্ধ দলিলপত্র : দশম খন্ড with Lt Mansur under N/Sub Manic of EPR and 3" inches Mortars were with me under N/Sub Syed Ahmed of E Bengal. 2 Rajput was attached with my Sector and 3" Dogra with Cant Zafar's Sector. On night 3". 4" November infiltrated inside Belonia for reccee sitting” Our rd-block positions with Six comds under me and “Six plcomds under Capt Shams. If was astonishing that we did not come across any en during our reccee from more than 5 miles areas inside from the border. Capt Shams No.1 Sector Sub-sector comd died this evening. Major Rafiq Sector Comd and Major Paradhan of Belonia came to see him. He was buried in Bangladesh graveyard at Belonia. Lt. Mansoor took over the command of No.1 Sub Sector. At 1730 hrs on 5" November, we first infiltrated conventionally inside Bangladesh at Belonia bulge. The last end of our making rq-block was at a place named Salia Dighi, 2 miles south of Parshuram PS, 5 miles inside from the border by the side of the main road Belonia Chagalnaiya. One of the Pl of 2 Rajput and an Arty OP were with me. It was complete dark at night and was raining cats and dogs while we infiltrate, which helped us a lot from being detected by en. While walking troops were falling here and there in slippery tracks, loosing one another in the darkness, missing the track and started shivering terribly out of severe cold. By the time we reached our destination it was 120’clock midnight and it was storming heavily at that time. Started positioning troops and digging then and there. The FFs who were supposed to bring the def stores like CGI sheets and planks behind us, could not proceed because of the heavy wind storm. Made more or less strong alround def with the sources available there in the area. Next early in the morning at 0530 hrs on 6"November an en reccee patrol was probably returning to their position at Gutuma BOP, bumped in front of Sub Loni Mia's PI and got hit and remained there for ever. En came to know about out def by about 1000 hrs and stared assaulting from alround. Whole day through storm they had been trying to dislodge us from the position but failed. At night, my left food PI under Hav Shaheed was attacked by an en PI, en was repulsed and suffered some cas; their dead bodies were lying in front of the PI scatteredly. At 0445hrs on 7" November, a coy of 11 Punjab attacked my left fwd PI under Hav Shaheed again, overran the position and reached upto the Coy HQ at Salia Dighi. I could not believe what had happened. I would see both my troops and the en were together running towards us. En could not reach upto our coy HQ at Salia Dighi and returned from there, but occupied Hav Shaheed's PI position on a pond about 100 yd in front of Coy HQ. Five Steps, two FFs and PI Comd Hav Shaheed were captured and killed by the en. Seven dead bodies had been lying there for two days, Hav Shaheed was taken away at Fenny jail where he was shot dead. One of his nephew was also with him in the same jail who was luckily safe till the day of Independence. For two days we tried to recapture my posin from en, but could not do that. En launched many offensive operations since last two days on our positions. First and biggest achievement was done on 8" November in the evening. Parshuram and Belonia came under our Occupation. Now we were a little ... from the rear, en was in front only towards south.
