    My late brother Capt Amitava Guha Roy, SS 21221, 8 Madras Regiment, was killed on Dec 19, 1971. He was the company commander fought against the enemy for long hours, resulted in the liberation of Shirimoni , Bangladesh. After ceasefire, it was after midnight, at 2am, he was leading his convoy of troops to the destined camp. On the route,he succumbed due to mine explosion as his jeep tossed up in air then crashed his head. In that injured state, he was taken to military hospital but before any medical aid reached he cried ” Ma”, … martyred. I’m the youngest brother of Capt Amitava Giha Roy. …Jai Hind.
