The Cadet College is dedicated to Captain Karnal Sher Khan Shaheed (NH), who was born in 1970 and commissioned to the army in 1994. 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, 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. 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]. In recognition of his sacrifice he was awarded the highest gallantry award Nishan-e-Haider.
Cadet College Karnal Sher Khan is established with the capital cost of Rs.1058 Million.
