The Cadet College is dedicated to Captain Karnal Sher Khan Shaheed (NH). He was born on 1st January 1970 and was commissioned in the Army on 14th October 1994. Captain Karnal Sher Khan emerged as a symbol of courage during the Kargil conflict. He set personal examples of bravery and inflicted heavy losses on the enemy. He defended the five strategic posts, which he established in colaboration with his soldiers at the height of 17,000 feet at Gultary, and repulsed many Indian attacks. After many abortive attempts, the Indians on 5th July 1999, ringed the posts of Captain Karnal Sher Khan with the help of two battalions and unleashed heavy mortar fire and managed to capture some part of one of his posts. Despite all odds, he led a counter-attack and re-captured the lost parts of his post. But during the encounter, he was hit by the machine-gun fire and embraced 'SHAHADAT'. In recognition of his great sacrifice he was awarded the highest gallantry award Nishan-e-Haider. The college is dedicated to him who is the son of the soil.
