Historical events During the war of liberation the Pakistan army established a military camp at Kamalpur, in the northern sector. From the point of view of war strategy this camp was so important that its fall meant to lose control over the whole Jamalpur-Dhaka region. The freedom fighters attacked Kamalpur many times. On 31 July 1971 the freedom fighters attacked Kamalpur under the command of Major Moinul Hussain Chowdhury, Battalion Commanding Officer of the 1st East Bengal Regiment of Sector 11. This time final victory was not achieved but the casualty in the Pakistan army was huge. In this battle 35 freedom fighters including Captain Salahuddin Momtaz, Ahaduzzaman and Abul Kalam Azad were killed. On 14 November 1971 Abu Taher lost one of his legs by explosive.
