She fought in her village home in Shankar Madhabpur, Kurigram District. She was in Sector 11 under the leadership of Sector commander Abu Taher. After the war, she was awarded honored with the title Bir Protik (Symbol of Valor) by the Bangladesh government. But her whereabouts were unknown and the award was never handed over to her.
