Capt Isfandyar, 11FF Regiment embraced martyrdom while fighting valiantly against the terrorists who attacked PAF airbase camp in Badaber area on Friday morning, 18th September 2015. The 27-year-old soldier was leading his troops from the front during the clearance operation. Captain Isfandyar Bukhari was wing commander of 48th Jinnah Wing Entry and had received Sword of Honour in 118th PMA Long Course and was awarded Tactics Medal as well.
He remained vice-captain of his college hockey team and played Punjab under-19 hockey.
He was chess champion at college, president of the biology club, editor of the college magazine and remained member of the board of editors for five years.
In a letter by one of Isfandyar’s teachers, Mr. Zaheer Qandeel, he paid a tribute by saying, “My martyred child, you are so big now that I feel so little!”
Following is the letter written for Isfandyar and a few pictures of this brave son of soil.
