On 16th September he was shot down in an F-86 Sabre Jet over Halwara, East Panjab while in an aerial combat with a Hunter aircraft. His aircraft caught fire and after ejection, while he was coming down by parachute he was fired from the ground and got injured by bullet wounds which was removed from his body after operation in a Military hospital. He spent about four and a half months as a prisoner of war and came back to join his old No 11 Squadron. Thereafter he served in various fighter squadrons of the PAF until 1970.
