In April 1971, the Indian Navy's Directorate of Naval Intelligence set up a covert maritime warfare unit – Naval Commando Operations (X) (NCO[X]). This black unit's existence was known to very few even within the navy. Its covert operation aimed at disrupting the maritime commerce lines that sustained the Pakistan Army in its eastern province. Over the next few months, this irregular unit, comprising Indian naval officers, divers, and former Pakistani submariners, set to work. They transformed over 400 Bengali youths from East Pakistan into combat swimmers, trained to assault merchant ships. The gunboats of NCO(X)'s naval wing mined shipping channels and harassed shipping entering East Pakistan. The ferocious campaign waged by this tiny unit was without precedent in the annals of naval warfare. They sank and disabled over 100,000 tonnes of shipping in the province , in support of the government of Bangladesh in exile. Their actions contributed towards India's ultimate victory in the eastern theatre of the December 1971 Indo-Pak war. Revealed for the very first time, here is the explosive authentic account – co-authored by a key NCO(X) member – of the guerrilla operation that went for the maritime jugular of Pakistan, and facilitated the birth of Bangladesh.
