Karnal Sher Khan Cadet College Swabi (KSKCCS) is a residential high school located in Ismaila, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.

Name[edit]

The Cadet College is dedicated to Captain Karnal Sher Khan Shaheed (NH), who was born in 1970 and commissioned to the army in 1994.[1] He carried out acts of bravery, inflicting heavy losses on the enemy during the Kargil conflict. He defended the five strategic posts, which he established at Gultary at a height of 17,000 feet,[2] and repulsed many attacks. Eventually in July 1999 the Indians surrounded the strategic posts and, with the help of two battalions, captured part of one of the posts.[2] Against all odds, Captain Karnal Sher Khan Shaheed led a counter-attack and re-captured the ground. During the encounter, he was hit by the machine-gun fire and embraced 'SHAHADAT'[clarification needed].[2] In recognition of his sacrifice he was awarded the highest gallantry award Nishan-e-Haider.[2]
