ESCAPE FROM OBLIVION: THE STORY OF A PAKISTANI PRISONER OF WAR IN INDIA
Author: IKRAM SEHGAL
ISBN: 9780199066070
Year: 2012
Publisher: OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS U.K
Category: BIO / AUTOBIOGRAPHIES
Edition: 1
Format: Hard Cover
Language: English
Pages: 350
 ABOUT THE TITLE
Ikram Sehgal, a Pakistani Army officer, became a prisoner of war (POW) in India in peculiar circumstances after he was handed over to the Indians after the rebellion in East Pakistan in 1971. Along with officers and other ranks of mostly non-Bengali origin, he was held in an Indian POW Camp that was established in April 1971 despite the fact that the India-Pakistan War that led to the creation of Bangladesh did not break out until December 1971. These 100 or so POWs remained undeclared by India throughout 1971. Kept in solitary confinement he escaped on the 100th day of captivity, becoming the first Pakistani Army officer to successfully break out from an Indian POW camp in history.

Made from original notes taken during the period of de-briefing on return to Pakistan, this fascinating book gives an insider's account of conditions in Indian custody. It is a spell-binding and gripping tale of individual courage, of disparate friendships made in very adverse circumstances and the will to survive.

Readership : Suitable for armed forces of South Asia, students of history and people of 1971 vintage.



Author: Ikram Sehgal studied in Murari Chand (MC) College, Sylhet and Notre Dame College, Dhaka before graduating from Pakistan Military Academy (PMA), Kakul. Commissioned in October 1965 in 2E Bengal in October 1965, he served in Army Aviation from 1968 to 1971. Taken POW in April 1971 in then East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), he was the first Pakistani POW to escape from India in July 1971. He was sent back to West Pakistan in November 1971. Joining 44 Punjab (now 4 Sindh) in the desert, he was given battlefield promotion to the rank of Major on 13 December 1971, leaving the Army on 24 January 1974.
