Details :

Squadron Leader Mujeeb Ullah Khan was commissioned as an engineering officer in the IAF on 26 June 1978 and has been on the strength of Indian Air Force Element, taking part in the United Nations Operations in Somalia (UNOSOM-II) in 1993.

Sqn Ldr MU Khan has held many distinguished appointments. He was Senior Mechanical Engineer of an operational Wing at Leh, Flight Test Engineer and Instructor at Aircraft & Systems Testing Establishment, Bangalore. He was specially selected as Senior Technical Officer for the overseas assignment with United Nations Operations in Somalia. With characteristic thoroughness, he applied himself to the task and ensured that all requirements for servicing and maintenance of helicopters were listed, procured and despatched in time. With immaculate planning and involvement he ensured that the Indian Air Force helicopters were made operational within record time, when Mogadishu airport was under heavy fire by the militia.

Whilst contingent rotated their helicopters every four months with frequent engine change, Sqn Ldr MU Khan personally attended to minutest details and ensured that Indian Air Force helicopters were always airworthy without such expensive maintenance. Notwithstanding the tiring, taxing, tough and hostile working conditions the officer has involved himself well beyond the call of duty and with his exemplary leadership has been able to motivate, inspire and extract willing support from his subordinates.

For distinguished service of high order the President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Sqn Ldr Mujeeb Ullah Khan.
